A Brief History Of Fake Memorial Plaques

In memory of Roger Bucklesby, who hated this park and everyone in it. Please, somebody make some funny signs that are real. Updated: we found it!

This is the best park bench memorial plaque ever.

I was walking through London and came across this bench

Except it's got to be Photoshopped, right? On the grounds that a) nobody else on the internet has ever seen this plaque that's supposedly in a public place in a city with a population of 8 million, b) we can't find anybody with the surname "Bucklesby" on the electoral roll, or anywhere else really, and c) just look at it, the text doesn't even line up with the edges of the plaque properly.

At last — this one's real! (It's just off Princes Street in Edinburgh).

@RyLee89 @JudithRosalind I took this in Edinburgh today.
