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


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.
