This guy's throwin' more than his voice...

This album cover, from 1975, is a classic that I think has stood the test of time.

There is so much wrong on this cover I don't know where to begin.

Okay, the title contains racial slurs and the ventriloquist is getting his cock sucked; those are a few good starting points. Also:

-The woman is holding a small American flag in her right hand.

-The white doll looks like a bald John Waters.

-The black doll looks stoned.

-The background has been used in several snuff films.

I like the fact that executives approved this cover:

"Well, we have the horribly stereotypical puppets and the obscene title. What could make this more offensive?"

"How 'bout we show him getting a blowjob."

"That's sound thinking."

Somehow, for reasons I cannot fathom, the content of this album has been lost over time. I can't think of anyone who quotes Richard and Willie routines. How the hell did that happen? You'd think such a bulletproof routine would have lasted through the ages...

I am reeling.




PS: When I blow you, I will be holding a small American flag in my right hand.

SHAZAM!

I think that cover was shot in a prison. They told that guy he'd get some head from a woman if he'd do it.

This is a perfect Halloween Post. I'm duly afraid now. Thank you.

Why do you assume it's a WOman doing the blowing????

Blogger Nick said...

Because I know Todd, and when he thinks of blowjobs, the last thing on his mind is guys.

I feel traumatized.

The ventriloquist looks just as stoned as the dummy.

As for the flag.....at least they're showing some kind of patriotism.....that and I think the dummy is naked from the waist below and the flag is covering up his woody.

Happy Halloween Toddy!

they swore to me that picture would never make it on to the internets... bastards.

Happy Halloween honey!

Ummmmmmm- reading your last post made me think you had some sort of problem with the slutty costumes. What is wrong with you? It's the one day of the year where my slutty wear can make it out of the bedroom - embrace it!!!

I think that guy asked me for change in front of Blockbuster last night.

I'm not sure, but I think she's blowing one of the dolls.

OMG... The bald guy looks like Colin Mochrie from Whose Line Is It Anyway!

ian,
the record company that released this also released all of Richard Pryor's early material. I'm guessing this isn't as good.

tits,
I'll supply the flag. Oh, and the cock.

kendra,
I think this album cover should be a postage stamp. I really do.

flounder,
that's a good deal for a prisoner.

kat,
I'm singing the national anthem in your dad's honor.

doggirl,
I was going to ask you to help me reshoot the cover...

monkey,
BOO!

just,
it kind of looks like a woman's body.

nick,
thank you for that unexpected defense.

genou,
a young Pee Wee Herman was inspired by this cover.

burr,
I'll comfort you.

little,
that one dummy IS naked from the waist down!! He's next.

cold,
I repeat, I don't have a problem with slutty costumes. The lose an eye comment was a joke. I do that sometimes. ANd Happy Halloween back at ya.

trix,
well, I hope you gave him some change. He's a seventies icon.

housekeeper,
if she's not, she will.

I'm offended that you didn't cover the word "honkey." On second thought, no I'm not.

You emailed this to me a year or two ago and it's even funnier now.

Good work bro.

My head just exploded.

I wonder if the girl put that cover on her resume.
