Denver-based online pawn shop Pawngo decided to have a little fun at the expense of wide receiver Wes Welker and the New England Patriots.

While the New York Giants were celebrating their Super Bowl XLVI victory with a parade on Tuesday, Pawngo sent 8,000 Butterfinger bars to Copley Square in Boston.

"We at Pawngo thought Boston fans deserved a little something in return for their heartbreaking loss in the form of a great candy!" Pawngo CEO Todd Hillis told NFL.com on Tuesday.

"Sometimes there is a light side to sports and we thought Boston fans might at least get a laugh out of it. We have the utmost respect for Wes Welker and the Patriots."

Welker was unable to reel in a pass during the fourth quarter, saying he "let the team down."

It was not immediately known if supermodel Gisele Bundchen was behind the prank.

The wife of quarterback Tom Brady lashed out at Giants fans - and tossed the Patriots' wide receivers under the bus in the process.

"You (need) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot (expletive) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” Bundchen said in a video obtained by TheInsider.com.

"I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times."
