(from http://sixawesomefacts.com/post/4480449418/cthulhu-facts-six-facts-about-cthulhu-1-writer ):

Cthulhu Facts!

Six Facts about Cthulhu

1. Writer H.P. Lovecraft supposedly invented Cthulhu in 1926, but there is a school of thought that believes he was simply transcribing dark religious texts being whispered through a dimensional portal in his basement.  When confronted with this, Lovecraft shrugged and said, “Well, that’s a more believable story than that whole Mormon golden plates thing. What’s up with that?”

2. In the first draft of his story Call of Cthulhu, Lovecraft not only described Cthulhu as “an awful squid-head with writhing feelers,” but also as speaking with a thick Canadian accent and smelling like maple syrup.  Editors removed this from the story to help hide Lovecraft’s well-known anti-Canadian bent.

3. The prayer to summon Cthulhu is given in the story as, “Ph’nglui mglw’nath Cthulhu Rl’yeh whah’nagl Bieber fhtagrl’.” This translates as “When Cthulhu come he will first be known as Bieber and his tentacles will be as bangs.”

4. There is rumored to be a worldwide Cult of Cthulhu that is trying to summon Cthulhu to bring about the end of the world and give them immortality. Rumored members include Michael J. Fox, Dan Aykroyd and William Shatner. All known Canadians.

5. When it came time to name their internet streaming service NBC, FOX and Disney chose a name that honored their great god Cthulhu, but had to shorten it to Hulu for marketing reasons. However, every time you watch an episode of Big Bang theory online with ad interruptions, you weaken the dimensional barrier just a little bit more.

6. The final fact is too dreadful to type in. In fact, just thinking about it puts me in desperate danger. I feel a dark presence entering the room and there is a strong smell of syrup - like being trapped in the dumpster at an IHOP. I turn and see a bright light and some smoke. Beware our brothers to the north. I type my final words … Ahhagahggg

I can't take credit for it,  seen it around a few places including the occasional three eyed variation (;,;,;)
