The Asian Prince
Someone wrote in with some new info about the Asian Prince website, which I have listed in my Hoax Websites Gallery. I stated that I wasn't sure if the Asian Prince was a hoax or not, but this reader reveals that the Prince's name "Wo-Hen Nankan" means "I am very ugly" in Mandarin. A clue that the site really is a hoax.

While the whole 'asian prince' thing may well be a load of bull, this guy is actually a vietnamese singer. He's performed on my city before, and that's a face I won't soon forget.
