Well executed! I'm almost sure this is based on a Far Side, but I can't find it anywhere, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and an 8.

BHA-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

BAM! You hit the humor aspect out of the ball park with this one:-) Lighting and set up is perfect. Kudos to you for the ingenuity on creating the 'bomb'. Love the expressions too! He, focused intently on careful hammering the warhead . She, with wide grin, coming up to pop the paper bag to startle him. A recipe for explosive humor that only works one time:-) I love the caption/title. It is simply stated and one sentance long that works very well with conveying the thought and twisted humor of this one.

backdrop and text on bomb don't look too realistic, persons look cut-out, otherwise well done
