Maybe it's the child in us, but some pranks just never get old -- and this is one of them. Unless the San Francisco sign hacker starts nagging us about paying bills and stuff, we don't predict we'll get bored of this game any time soon.

CBS News reports that the sign hacker has struck again -- this time in the Upper Haight, and this time with a less ominous message that wants drivers about a Godzilla attack. The new message reads "Hi, It's Me, The Sign. Don't Trip. Be Nice People."

A few weeks ago when it was unusually hot in San Francisco, hackers broke into a sign on Van Ness that warned drivers that the city was closed because it's "too damn hot."

Well at least someone is having fun.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
