In the cute snap posted to Facebook, Alfred is shown laying in a hospital bed in good spirits while holding up a pretty hilarious sign that reads, "My daughter does not think I can get 98 likes for being 98 years old. Can we prove her wrong? 1 like = Respect!" Well, his daughter was definitely proven wrong, as just several days after the picture was posted, it went completely viral and Alfred has more than 50,000 "likes" and 4,000 comments. At this rate, it already looks like Alfred is in for the best 98th birthday celebration ever.
