Nope, it's the outstanding sax artistry of Plas Johnson! Interesting imagery. I bet she never even met him. :p He missed her unique way of keeping doors closed.
I really like this endorsement on the back. It would make a great poster, or even just a straight ad (perhaps in poster form plastered around town) for the album.
Here's a video featuring his playing. I bet you've heard it and didn't know it was him!

So nice! Love the use of color and multiple mediums. Oh, and the Mae West dove is a nice touch. :p

Pretty cheeky! (see, I can be punny too, Jonah)

Here's the entire Side 1, containing all the sound effects:
And if you'd like to hear "Jes' Fruggin'", it's here, starting around 7:03:

Here's a live performance of the track:
