Everyone tells me I have a dry, quirky sense of humor which probably explains why I think this cover is so funny.  The thought of someone having stacked hundreds of slices of bread around namesake Walter "Junie" Morrison just makes me smile.  

By the way, Morrison's best known for his keyboard work with George Clinton and the Funkadelic/Parliament extended family.  While "No Bread" has a funky edge to it, Morrison had a great voice and the album was surprisingly commercial and enjoyable.
