Not creepy, but it's my favorite depiction of a cyclist. I love this illustration.

I am not sure if this classifies as creepy or crazy but it was a good retort to the sudden rise of index shifting.

I can't remember if they cam from VeloNews or Bike Retailer and Industry News.

Hey Crank_Addict, great thread! New, different, entertaining. So far, no controversy or sniping at other posters.

I'm just waiting for the creepy ones to get posted. So far they've all seemed to be great old advertising, humorous post cards (remember humor?), and some obscure comic book covers.
The one with the dog being cut in half and all the people knocked down is hilarious!
