Roughly 25 Years Before The Tate-LaBianca Slayings, Young Charles Manson Receives A Bicycle For Christmas

Okay, so he would grow up to be the leader of The Family. mooching off Beach Boy Dennis Wilson, brutally slaying coffee heiresses, acquiring "young loves" and talking Crazy Talk out at Spahn Ranch.  
Charlie was a kid once, too, and in this touching 1944 advertisement just in time for Christmas, he captures the holiday spirit in a way that only a Young Manson could: with a look that any sane parent would learn to fear (and possibly would lead to an exorcism by Father O'Halloran by New Year's Day).
Not that an exorcism on Young Charles Manson would have worked, anyway.  He already WAS Jesus Christ, remember?  
Father O'Halloran would sprinkle the holy water on Young Manson and scream, "The power of Christ compels you!"  
Young Manson would respond, "No, I didn't.  Now where in the fuck is my new bike?  There's a couple of addresses in the Hollywood Hills I want to check out."
