Byter Sue P has drawn my attention to an item in the website Bored Panda, which shows people combining themselves with LP record covers, For the benefit of younger readers, here is a glossary (and, to paraphrase Bob Newhart who said “I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down”, for those who like country music, glossary means an explanation of words):
Record: In the days before CD’s, electronic music sources, Youtube etc, people purchased vinyl discs with recorded music. These discs were called records.
LP: Records were sold as Long Playing (“LP”) with multi songs, or “singles” with one song. LP’s were 10 to 12 inches (25-30cm diameter) and played at 33/13rpm. Singles were 7 inches in diameter and were played at 45rpm.
(Which gives me the opportunity to repost an old joke from those days:
A lady went into a music store seeking a Christmas record. She says to the youth behind the counter: “Have you got Jingling Bells on a 10 inch?”
He says “No, but I’ve got dangling balls on a 7 inch.”
“Is that a record?” she asks.
“Maybe not,” he replies, “but it’s not bad for a lad of 17.”)
LP record covers: What you young people see on CD covers used to be much larger and on the cardboard covers for the LP records.
The following pics of people blending with record covers, with some of the reader comments, are from the Bored Panda post at:
It would be better with cat slippers since he loved cats so much, I love this one!!
Absolutely nailed it, well done
That in itself would make a great album cover.
Don’t care how old I am, I want a pair of those slippers! They are absolutely adorable!

Kind of a strange place to do that...
Dad does not look proud.
A team effort. Not a fan of the gut hanging out of the shirt though.
I'm kinda impressed that they have a house phone
Scotty, I called you to beam me up an hour ago! I am NEVER going to let you drive the ship again!"
Really miss him, still can’t believe he's gone
The Shirt & Collar match perfectly!
I remember when he used to look like that, that was a long time ago.
Not nearly enough body hair, but so sweet.
