People have mocked a weird police e-fit showing a bloke looking like the Megabus character Sid.
North Somerset police tweeted out the picture to locate the suspect in a distraction burglary case in Weston-super-Mare, where some jewellery was stolen from a home.
Instead the image, which shows a man while unnaturally large cheeks, was mocked for looking like a number of children's characters, including The Fat Controller, Humpty Dumpty and even Megabus icon Sid.
One person joked: "Hi, I have some important information of the whereabouts of the stolen jewellery based on this e-fit. It’s in his cheeks."
Police insist it matched the description of a suspect who told a female resident his son had thrown a set of keys into her garden and asked if he could retrieve them.

She agreed and took the suspect down a walkway. He then reportedly sprinted off and jumped into a car with two other men and escaped.
The victim's neighbour then told her she had been burgled – and she found that a safe containing jewellery had been stolen from her home.
The incident happened between 2.45pm and 3pm on January 6 in the Clifton Road area of the seaside resort.
People enjoyed a cheeky joke despite the seriousness of the crime.
The suspect's cheeks were stretched even wider in one photoshopped picture shared underneath the police post.

One user commented that it looked like the smiling suspect "enjoyed his work".
