While many neighbors often purchase gifts at , located at 216 Court Street between Baltic and Warren Streets, the retail shop was the unfortunate recipient of "a nasty little present" itself on Thursday.
A passerby wrote in to Pardon Me For Asking stating that while walking by the closed storefront yesterday morning, she observed something hanging from the pull-down metal grate.
"At first I thought it was a piece of meat or an octopus," the reader told PMFA. "But when I looked more closely, all I could think was that it was some sort of internal organ."
The bizarre, stomach-turning item [a photo can be viewed by clicking through the gallery] was approximately the size of a shoe, red and yellow in color, and had been hung at eye level, the reader said.
Teddy has since reported the incident to the police.
"We are as surprised by that nasty little present as anyone who sees the picture," owners told PMFA. "We are checking with the local butcher shop and have informed the police, but we really don't think it is anything other than some moron with a sick sense of humor. Our cameras will catch them if it happens again. Grossness and stupidity combined! Yuck."
