One of the earliest known Shriexing flyers, estimated to date back to the early 1980s. The geographic location where the flyer was originally posted is uncertain, but is thought to be Upper State New York. Note the early spelling, Shrieking, with a K instead of an X. Shriexing with an X would become the accepted spelling in the mid 1990s.
