It's all the terrible truth

It just ain't a San Francisco event until Frank Chu lopes up, toting his sign. It doesn't matter if it's an SEIU picket, a Holocaust remembrance ceremony, or a sale at Ross -- all that's important to Chu is that he can wave his bizarre message in front of the masses and spread the truth: While he was the prince of China, several former U.S. presidents in cahoots with the CIA and 12 galaxies used mind-controlling drugs to film a movie of him and his family and broadcast it to the 12 galaxies and never paid Frank a cent for being its star.

If you've ever wanted to offer Chu advice on how to print a properly jaw-dropping sign -- but were afraid to approach him -- now you can "model" a sign on Chu himself at the excellent "Acme ChuMaker" Web site. Using around a dozen different photos of Chu on the streets of San Francisco, the site allows you to enter your own text -- and can also supply "automatically generated Chuglish."

We may have followed through on Emperor Norton's suggestion to build the Bay Bridge -- but none of the Emperor's contemporaries gave him his own Web site. Warrants mentioning.
