Our last post linked to a site that showcased twenty of the worst album covers known to humankind. We followed the link a little further and discovered a few that we had not seen the first time around.
This is disturbing on about eight levels. First and foremost in our mind, however, is that the rat appears to be smiling. Is it only us? Did Swamp Dogg draw a little smiley face on there? Either way, Swamp should not be forgiven for that shirt.
Then there is this one:
We were going to wait until the next Voreslang to pull this one out, but we couldn’t wait once we saw Heino. Whenever we see someone of androgynous appearance, we play a little game called “Heebie/Sheebie.” A Heebiesheebie is a girl who looks like a guy; a Sheebieheebie vice versa. (If this seems backward, think of it this way: Men and women look distinct. If you’re androgynous, you look like you’re moving toward the other gender. Hence, a girl who looks like a guy but is actually a girl wants to be a he.)
Back to the game: If we both agree on one’s Heebieness or Sheebieness, then the game is over and we both win. If we disagree, we must track/follow/stalk that person until we conclusively identify his/her gender. This can be difficult when you’re in a car.
We can play this game now using our fun WordPress polling feature.
That was fun.
This is sort of uplifting until you know that the McDonald Sisters were given the choice of Confidence or Friends. This makes the cover that much more tragic.
