I got this idea from an email a friend sent me. Basically, you take the good news, like:
Your son is seeing someone new

Then the bad:
She's already married

Then the ugly:
She's your boss.

The person who breaks the ugly news gets to start the next one.

How about:
The Good: You got a promotion...
