Thanksgiving Inequality question comic

I needed an activity for the last day before Thanksgiving with snow on the way -- and I gave a test yesterday. New topics are useless. Most approaches to working today won't work.

So I adapted my first Thanksgiving comic (below) to make it an inequality, which is the topic we most recently covered, and lightened the colors to make it more copier-friendly.

I asked them to create their own Thanksgiving-themed math comic on the bottom of the page (which didn't have to be about inequalities), and to solve their own problem. (There doesn't have to be a problem -- if they come up with a good joke or explanation of a problem, that's fine, too. Most likely, they'll copy mine -- that's usually what happens.)
