With a name like his, one British cop isn't getting away that easy.

Twitter users had some fun on Thursday after a police officer in England gave an interview that aired on ITV News. The man's name was only shown on the screen for a few seconds, but the ironic moniker lived on.

His name? Banks. Rob Banks.

The Avon and Somerset police constable spoke to ITV about how the police force has been impacted by recent budget cuts.

Users also had laughs about other officials with word plays for names, like a chief of police in Oregon and a high-ranking Catholic Church leader in the Philippines.
