I really can't make out what you're asking here. Any chance you could rephrase it a bit?

i guess you mean bomb when you said bob and that depends on the reason of not going off and the type of bomb used.

Very old fashioned bombs did use a burning fuse to set them off, this was a pice of string dipped in gunpowder to make it burn better. However since then there have been many more sophisticated ways of doing it, and most modern explosives need a small explosion to set them off and will otherwise just burn normally. You can use strong acids eating through a metal plate to time your explosion, or clockwork, or do the whole thing electrically. So modern bombs don't smoke before blowing up.
