The camera seemed fine, so I continued taking pictures of the King of All Media with the King of All Gum.
Only after Howard was inside did I noticed that a piece of the camera was now missing. I'd apparently knocked it partway loose when I was hurrying to get the camera out through the bars of the window. (Hey, nice plaid shirt, Steve!)
The gum has outlasted many things. It looks like it may outlast this camera.
