Mia culpa. I lied. I am a fucking liar, and I am actually very sorry if you can believe me. I did use Photoshop to touch up the image, but only to convey what it really looks like. The flash made the sticky rubber stand out too much, and so I did some touching up.
OK, I am a liar and I can't be trusted now.
You guys are pretty smart actually, figuring it out. But since I can't be trusted, even this comment falls flat. Damn that was dumb of me. At least I could have been straight with you. But no...I've actually have been feeling pretty bad about it all week.
