So, there I was… in the jungle, minding my own affair, when there came a knock on my studio door. Sans machete, I waded my way out of the faux thicket and taxidermy to answer it. I had set up a studio shoot earlier in the evening to resemble a jungle with a nude jungle princess romping in it. That would explain all the plastic vegetation. Another knock, louder, a little more urgent. I twisted the lock on the door and opened it. He shoved past me before I could say anything.
