The cities of Cheshire West and Chester in the UK are in the midst of a serious manhunt — and all because of a few benches. The cities’ benches were given the comedy treatment with a series of hilarious plaques, meant to protest a new city ordinance that would “address antisocial behavior in the area.” It seems only natural that a ridiculous city law would warrant an equally ridiculous response, and the plaques are sure to make local residents laugh. We don’t know who the brilliant mind behind these plaques is, but we’d definitely like to shake their hand.
