    I love all of Tanner's expresssions. Fred is absolutely adorable. Even Malachi is swayed to share.

    I've heard once friends are the family you choose. For the campers, it sure is true. Very touching closing up for Fred's tale.

    I don't know if it's exactly irony, but it's funny that Seventeen is the one who correctly counted the bowls.

    I also love her stuffed face and throwing soup everywhere.

    Briguy: It turns out you don't have to count to see mismatched sets. I think it's called the shepherd's method of counting:
    Even without any math education at all and even with sheep herds much larger than 10 (which could have been counted by hand, of course), shepherds still knew how many sheep were missing.
    They did this by putting down stones, one for each sheep, when they left the pen, and then they'd pick them up again when returning. If a sheep ended up missing, a stone would have remained.
    The qualitative concepts of "more" and "less" are more basic than the concept of quantity :)

    Of course you could argue that it's still somehow "not quite irony" that Seventeen of all people would notice that, but then it's very much in-character that she would be the sort compassionate of person who pays attention to the feelings of others. And also the person who wouldn't be afraid to speak up about it.

    I'm amused not because of her education or lack of it, but because in her sibling picture she only had 15 siblings not 16, but her name is Seventeen.

    Potential well sibling withstanding.

    Like @STYXTRAVLER said, there's no telling what Seventeen handed Fred...

    Also, anyone ever notice, that because we demand a cat be in every comic, that now there's this creepy thing going on. It looks like the cats are silently watching, guarding, waiting to strike??

    BEWARE THE CATS!

    @Briguy "Potential Well sibling withstanding"

    Bri I swear you've become as much a part of this comic as Katie and Adam

  • wowfoodwowfood Registered User new member
    wait a second, that last panel.. Is Malachi... Sharing?

    Holy cow he's been replaced!

  • MartynMartyn Registered User regular
    No worries about the "mystery condiment" Seventeen found. Fred has been tasting this stuff all along, and if it was lethal we'd know it by now.

  • marsiliesmarsilies Registered User regular
    @Morgan%20Blackpowder

    I'm assuming you don't have a cat, because cats are ALWAYS silently watching, guarding, waiting to strike...

    Sorry Katie, but it was the first thought in my head when I read this. :')
    So I HAD to draw this terrible joke, sorry, but not really... :'D

    We're considering hiring him on as our community manager. It's a full-time job, so he'd need to quit whatever job he has now. It's an unpaid position, but he can have any one (1) of our Pinny Arcade pins for free!

    To be fair, I put a lot of thought into my ramblings in the comments. Do you guys have an entire room dedicated to Camp W with one of those boards you see in mob movies with the strings linking everyone together? I think not. I do, and in the middle I have "shoes?!" circled. I don't know how shoes link everything together, yet, but I know it's important!

    Aww. Malachi's actually sharing.

    I just realized. That's the same face Fred made when he, his dad, and his real mom ate together.

  • SennoSenno AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Nice tie in to American Thanksgiving too. :)

  • SargeSarge Registered User regular
    What's this?! A happy ending?! :?
    Must look for dark side of story.... :x
    Let's see... that soup looks thin.... and there's virtually no vegetables, no dairy, no fruit, no meat. Ok, here goes: 8-)

    Mmmmmm... medium Ramen soup and what I can only assume are bread slices; A part of this unbalanced and malnourishing diet.

    There, I did my best to bring a little darkness back to the comic. It's not working, is it? :( The happy is too strong with this episode.
    Must... resist... being... happy....

    ....

    :)

    From the comic with the supply drop that started this arc:

    http://campcomic.com/comic/255

    they are the ends of loaves of bread. Fred then stacked them and cut them into slices. There actually are some veggies, since Fred mentioned there are also potato peelings and asparagus stalks.

    Attempt to bring darkness to Fred's happy cook time: DENIED!

    @BansheeKitty and @Sarge
    What? You want darkness in this comic? Fine, I'll give you darkness. WE STILL DO NOT KNOW WHY THE CAMP HAD THAT INSTANT RAMEN! Yeah, I know I brought it up at least twice before, but it's a disgusting flavor at best and contains lead or some other deadly ingredient at worst.

  • TibxeroTibxero Registered User regular
    @AdamRW All joking aside isn't it about time we made @Briguy an official Camp Councilor? As I recall he has some experience...

    Happy Thanksgiving to all the North American readers out there! I hope your holidays are filled with joy and good, lasting memories for you and your families :). We don't have Thanksgiving on this tiny little island I call home, so I have to wait until Christmas to share in the festivities :P. Also, I wanna remind you guys about those around the world and in your own countries who may be less fortunate than you at this time of year, some even drastically so (for example, the families fleeing Syria due to war and terrorism). Let's all keep the less fortunate in our hearts during the holiday season and try our best to be charitable towards them. Volunteer, give your time, do some mentoring work, donate foodstuffs / money....whatever it may be, big or small. In other words, just be the best Fred you can possibly be, now and always. A small gesture granted in kindness can always go a long way, now more than ever.

    That was one of the most heart-warming comics I've read so far. Wonderful story arc!

  • Morgan BlackpowderMorgan Blackpowder Registered User regular
    @TIBXERO #FredUpWithHunger would be a great food drive. I'd contribute :D

  • WestIndianAgoutiWestIndianAgouti Registered User regular
    @TIBXERO Malachi's charity would be the Malvation Army :3

    I legitimately think running a Fred Up with Hunger food/donation drive would be a cool idea.

  • briguybriguy Registered User regular
    Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for this comic, for how beautiful, touching, and funny it can be. Also for the wonderful people it draws.

    @WESTINDIANAGOUTI While Canadians everywhere appreciate the sentiment, please know that today is only American Thanksgiving; Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.

    Wishing you much to be thankful for, year-round.

  • qozleqozle Registered User regular
    I was stressed for work, just got home, checked the comics, and I feel bit relieved already reading this. Thank you thank you thank you.

    Good memory there banshekitty. I totally forgot about that bread being in the crate.
