After a series of devastating floods there. the call went out for aid and supplies.
Many people donated, and I'm sure most gave needed items.
But mixed among the donations were a few things you wouldn't think of as high on the list of needs for flood victims: a thong, a tiger costume, and a wedding dress.
And if that doesn't take the cake, consider this: the thong was "soiled."
"It looks like people were using the campaign to get rid of their stuff," a volunteer told the El Heraldo newspaper, according to Colombia Reports.
Or maybe they were just being optimistic. A wedding dress, tiger costume and a thong would make for one heck of a post-flood victory party.
