Officers hoped their digital sketch of a suspect would be seen by as many people as possible and, in that sense, they succeeded. A composite depiction of a suspected burglar went viral Tuesday when it was shared on Twitter by Warwickshire Police in the UK. It shows what Mashable describes as a "truly terrifying" man with "an inhumanly large, Cheshire Cat-like grin."

"The good news is that he should be really easy to spot," quipped one user, per the Week, while others shared images of lookalikes, from Ross Geller to SpongeBob SquarePants. "We anticipated the attention," police later said. "But jokes aside, it was created from a description provided and it's serious." The suspect remains at large. (More United Kingdom stories.)
