Tick tick tick tick...

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: I have a minute to defuse this
{a bomb shows the digits 01:00}
T-Rex: BOMB!
T-Rex: First I'll wait a while, since bombs are always defused with just a few seconds to go.
{the bomb shows 00:46}
Utahraptor: That's dramatic presentation, not reality!
{the bomb shows 00:23}
Utahraptor: In real life, bombs can take many minutes to defuse!
T-Rex: Wut?
{the bomb shows 00:12}
T-Rex: This "real life" sounds interesting. Tell me more!
{Utahraptor has fled the scene}
{the bomb shows 00:01}
{the comic ends tantalisingly, a frozen second of time before the bomb detonates...}

The author writes:

I wonder how many movies and TV shows have people defusing timer bombs with an hour or more of time to spare.

Or webcomics, for that matter.
