Flowers aren’t an unusual gift to sell on Mother’s Day, however, one Philadelphia Catholic school managed to mess that up when they accidentally sold roses that had red thongs folded inside.
St. Anselm, a grade school in Northeast Philadelphia, purchased the roses not knowing that they were Valentine’s gifts intended for adults, Philly Voice reports.
On Tuesday, Ken Gavin, a spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said, “Saint Anselm Parish School took immediate steps to remediate this issue when it became known inclusive of broad communication with school families. The situation represents an unfortunate mistake and we apologize deeply.”
“We sincerely regret any embarrassment and discomfort that was caused and wish all mothers in the community a Happy and Blessed Mother’s Day with hearts full of gratitude,” Gavin said.
One family didn’t seem too fazed by the ordeal and even poked fun, sharing a video on social of unwrapping the lingerie.
“Thank you St. Anselm’s,” a woman says with a laugh off camera.
