Fantastic dinosaur voyage

First | Previous | 2015-08-24 | Next | Latest

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

{T-Rex is surrounded by enormous blood cells}
T-Rex: I'm in your bloodstream.
T-Rex: KILLN UR VIRUSES!
T-Rex: Here's one shaped like a house. {T-Rex stomps it}
T-Rex: And a tiny human! {stomps}
Utahraptor: The reader wants us out of here, now!
T-Rex: Huh.
T-Rex: Well, dinosaurs or smallpox, your choice!
{There is a giant smallpox virus in the bloodstream, uh oh}

The author writes:

That really is a giant smallpox virus. In reality, smallpox virus is about 20 times smaller than a red blood cell. But that would have been a lot harder to draw.

Anyone bothered by the fact that the virus is bigger than the blood cells should stop and think for a second about the dinosaurs.
