Brits have been chuckling at a bench sign in Margate this week dedicated to someone who is still alive.
Traditionally, memorial benches are inscribed with the names of people who have passed away.
However, it seems that Hayden Kays’ family wanted to make one for him after he became “increasingly antisocial”.
A Reddit poster shared a snap of the plaque, which said: “Dedicated to – Hayden Kays.
“Forever missed by his friends and family – He’s not dead yet. He’s just become increasingly anti-social.

And, more than 14,000 people liked the post and left hundreds of comments.
“That’s going to be awkward when he actually dies,” noted one.
Another person said: “The benches in Margate are like 50% for the lols I think, having recently moved here."
They continued: “There's also one for Muhammed Ali somewhere, and one for Music Festivals.”
And, it’s thought that Hayden Kays, the subject off the bench, is an artist based in the area who often creates poignant, political and funny pieces.

Other Reddit posters shared the funny bench plaques they had spotted.
One said: “There was one in Brighton years ago that said something like ‘Gary Smith made his first s***ily rolled spliff here, March 1995’.”
Another added: “In the middle of Crystal Palace Park there's a fenced off private fishing pond.
“On a bench right outside, there's one dedicated to a woman who ‘took pleasure in annoying the fishermen by feeding the ducks’.”
