CHICAGO — A Chicago Police Department tweet showing off the spoils of a drug and gun bust — including a long, antique pistol — launched a series of Twitter jokes about the shared photo.
The guns have a, shall we say, "vintage" look about them, and the tweet set off a storm of dozens of people questioning whether Jesse James, Jack Sparrow or Billy the Kid had been captured.
The tweet ended up getting more than 300 responses, most of them jokes.
Here is what Chicago police found:
