Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: I found a meteorite.
T-Rex: SPACY!
T-Rex: I guess it's a carbonaceous chondrite[1]. I sliced and etched it and it displays Widmanstätten patterning[2].
Utahraptor: Isn't it ironic[3]?
Utahraptor: Don't you think?
T-Rex: Are you raining on my parade?
T-Rex: I'm getting married later today!!
