[From Ben] Sleevage does reviews of album covers. In response, and in celebration of the holidays, here's one you probably won't find anywhere else:

(Click for larger version.)

It's the Holiday Memories from Burger King album from 1991! And it's got all your favorite Christmas tunes:

- "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," Andy Williams
- "The Little Drummer Boy," Air Supply
- "Silent Night, Holy Night" BeBe & CeCe Winans

These are available for upload if anyone is interested.

Interesting things to note:

- Whites, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians are all represented here. What are they all doing having Christmas dinner together? Burger King seems to have made a solid attempt at representing all racial groups, but there are still more white people than anyone else.
- Where are the Pacific Islanders?
- The kid on the right side: Is he Hispanic or Asian? One of the Hispanic women is looking at him lovingly, and the Asians are ignoring him, so I assume he's Hispanic.
- That brings me to another point. This picture looks totally doctored--or as doctored as you can get pre-Photoshop. I have a strong suspicion that these people were all photographed separately and then added in to create the appearance of interracial holiday cheer.
- That's one big-ass dining room.

1. Where's the BK?! I want my flame broiled Holiday Whopper.

2. I know those old people carving the turkey, and they would not tolerate a black man at the table. The old man is the one with all the racist jokes, but actually he's cooler than the old lady by a long shot. She can't even think about black people without curling her lip.
