Big Brother is Watching…

you!  On the CTA!  Creeper blog “R.O.C.K. on the C.T.A.” collects pictures of funny, odd, and attractive people on Chicago trains and buses.  It’s a little bit creepy, but browsing through the site is oddly interesting and very often funny.

Many thanks go to Gapers Block, a blog that posted a link to “R.O.C.K.” on their Twitter feed.
