Embarrassing Mother's Day Mix Up At Philadelphia Catholic School Goes Viral

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- An embarrassing Mother's Day mix-up at a local catholic school goes viral -- and has many people cracking up. St. Anselm's Catholic School in Parkwood held a flower sale for Mother's Day and the moms ended up with quite a surprise.

The faux roses turned into a sexy, red thong.

It was obviously a mistake for a grade school to be giving something like that to moms. The principal for Saint Anselm's sent out a follow-up email to parents saying:

The roses sold at our Mother's Day plant sale were not the single faux flowers originally intended. 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. 

You know that 80s song from Poison "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," well in this case it's every rose has its thong.
