City Council Searches For Pranksters Who Added Funny Signs To Park Benches

Park benches throughout the city of Chester in England were recently the object of a fun prank when pranksters attached brass plaques with funny (though perhaps slightly offensive) messages to the benches that looked like dedication plaques.

According to the Metro, the pieces were installed by anonymous artists to protest the Chester council’s plan to pass a Public Space Protection Order. Supporters believe it would help curb antisocial behavior in public spaces, while opponents believe it would be used to unfairly target the homeless and vulnerable.

Fearing that people might be offended, the Chester council has already removed the plaques. It’s also looking for the prankster responsible!

Brilliant! I hope the "prankster" keeps it up and manages to evade the authorities. The plaques are clever and, obviously, effective. Now the world knows!
