EDITOR'S NOTE: Fresh off a three year managerial stint, your friendly neighborhood lenslinger is back on the street and under heavy deadline. As the numbing effects of his self-imposed containment wear off, vexing reflections and pithy epistles are sure to follow...

Crouching Lifer, Hidden Hernia

Back Ache TheaterSeen here in its natural environment, the Lenslingamus Maturicus is known for contorting its form to feed itself and others. Note that sensible hoof covering, the belted thorax, the dime store wristwatch ... all signs of a fully grown photogopod. But don't let the everyday markings fool you. This species is a cold blooded killer, no matter how feeble or bitter they may appear in advanced stages. The undomesticated news shooter can stun its enemy with a panoply of offensive maneuvers... the overhanded lens launch, the spinning microphone drop-kick and, most grotesquely, the Darth Vader duck walk (pictured above). Considered the most vile member of the broadcast stratum, the seasoned slinger can project a noxious bile from damn near thirty yards, stun its prey with rambling war stories and assemble cogent timeline even when fully hibernated. Most lose their distinctive markings as they mature, but just because a 'Freebird' t-shirt has been replaced by a bland, blue button-down doesn't mean you should approach this most ornery of scavengers unarmed. Known for their odorous hides high tolerance to pharmaceuticals and general disdain for meaningful human interaction, black-market tranquilizer darts have been sanctioned by governing bodies in all fifty states.

Approach with caution, if at all...

Great, you now know that poor 'tog is going to have to spend ALL DAY standing on that lonely street corner panhandling for MOS's if you keep on scaring the public off like that...
