“Butterfingers” Stunt Tweaks Patriots’ Dropped Pass

People aren’t quite done piling on New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker for a dropped fourth quarter pass that helped the New York Giants win the Super Bowl.

An online pawnbroker dumped hundreds of Butterfinger candy bars in Boston’s Copley Square on Tuesday with a note: “Thank you Wes Welker.”

The tongue-in-cheek stunt by Pawngo.com drew takers for the candy and a citation from the city for commercial dumping.

Pawngo CEO Todd Hills says in a statement to The Boston Globe the Denver- and Chicago-based company “thought Boston fans might at least get a laugh out of it.” He says the company respects Welker and the Patriots.

Welker led the NFL with 122 receptions but dropped a slightly off-target pass from quarterback Tom Brady with about four minutes left Sunday night. The Giants won 21-17.
