This is not the first time the department has had some fun with its social media accounts.

You have the right to remain fresh. 

Kanye West has been jokingly offered a job by Philadelphia police to help him get out of debt. 

On Thursday, Philadelphia police tweeted to West that the department was hiring, and at base salary, $47,920, the rap star and clothing designer could be out of self-described $53 million debt by 3122. 

Police also tweeted a Photoshopped image of West in a uniform. 

West has been the topic of conversation for the past few weeks, thanks largely to his numerous Twitter rants and limited release of his highly anticipated album. His lyrics about making Taylor Swift famous and his secretly recorded profane rant backstage at Saturday Night Live didn't help.

As for Philadelphia police, this is not the first time the department has had some fun with its social media accounts. In December, police tweeted that spoiling Star Wars: The Force Awakens is not a crime but that it should be one. 

On Facebook, the department posted a photo showing two storm troopers seemingly getting arrested on South Street with the caption: "No, posting #StarWarsForceAwakens spoilers online is not a crime. Yes, it should be." It then added that "any illegal Sith behavior will still be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
