A police officer has become famous for his punny name, after an ITV report on budget cuts went viral.
PC Rob Banks (wait for it...) from Avon & Somerset Police appeared on ITV News West Country on the 17 of January to discuss how the police force is being impacted by severe budget cuts.
A caption with his name on it only briefly appeared on the screen during the interview, but that was all the time it took for people on social media to notice the pun and put their own spin on it.
@sethdarby @KoenVanderElst I hope his autobiography will be titled “I, Rob Banks” — Steven (@Steven)
@StratCars @sethdarby @tara_mulholland His best mate is Hans Up — Aaron Bell (@Aaron Bell)
Some even contributed other hilarious examples of names gone wrong.
@sethdarby Indeed. https://t.co/tyaml5uGl4 — Murtles (@Murtles)
