The next time you feel like doing the "siren surrounded by dogs" gimmick, try to find dogs that actually look threatening. Rather than cuddly. I think the one on her left there actually belongs to my aunt. He loooves having his belly rubbed; aw, he's a good boy, yes he does.

The use of Satanic imagery and the middle finger to represent anything remotely cool or threatening is dead and buried, the bloated corpses of each represented by whatever the fuck this is. Also, that thing's forehead looks just like a butt. I wonder if it poops into its own eye or something. That'd be kinda metal, I guess.

This attempt to be shocking is somehow just totally whatevs. Satanic imagery clip art. OH MAN and I just got the album title pun! Well, I guess that is actually pretty clev-zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
