Philadelphia Catholic School Gifts Parents Thongs in Mother's Day Mix Up

Parents of students of a Catholic school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, got quite a surprise when faux roses sold by the school for Mother’s Day contained thongs.

Footage shot by Rachel Tremblay on May 6 shows her husband opening up the rose she received from St. Anselm’s Catholic School. The couple saw the humor in the mix up, with Rachel Tremblay thanking the school.

“The roses sold at our Mother’s Day plant sale were not the single faux flowers originally intended,” the school’s principal wrote in an email to parents, as reported by CBS Philly. “Instead, the item was a Valentine’s Day gift intended for adults. The administration will determine how the error occurred and take steps to prevent a further recurrence.” Credit: Rachel Tremblay via Storyful
