Destroying vinyl 2

You know how a lot of record shops have stopped bothering to sell vinyl any more? That’s because they’ve found something else to do with records instead. Making cake stands out of them. I can forgive your scepticism, so I deliberately did not post this on or near April 1st. See photo for evidence. These were on sale in a charity shop in sunny Dewsbury a few weeks ago for no less than a tenner. It’s not clear whether some bright spark at head office came up with the idea, or if its a failed marketing concept from those berks who brought us the vinyl bookends, but either way it’s wrong on at least two counts; 1) it ruins albums and 2) these flimsy 80s pressings simply won’t support the weight of a decent piece of cake.

Doubtless they’ll be saving up the abandoned sleeves for something equally bonkers.

More destroying vinyl. Vinyl bookends.
