Three minute mile

First | Previous | 2018-03-09 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Sharruma

Caption: How I feel at work sometimes
Ambrose (to the reader): The world record for the mile is currently three minutes and forty-three point one three seconds.
Ambrose (still to the reader): I reckon you could do it in under three minutes.
Ambrose: (Indicating a one ton weight): Oh, and I need you to take this with you.

The author writes:

My original idea had Ambrose talking to Delkin. But when I decided on a one ton weight rather than shooting Delkin in the leg, Delkin became superfluous.
