An unsuspecting shopper has experienced quite the shock after stumbling across a rather rude message in the party section of a shop in Port Macquarie, NSW.

“Just stopped to grab some balloons....gday!” Cara, from NSW, captioned the provocative pic which she shared on Facebook.

“It’s my friend’s baby shower tomorrow and I offered to grab some balloons while I was on holidays up there because everyone else was working during the week,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

“I popped into this shop and as I turned down the balloon aisle I found this little surprise hanging there.”

Cara clearly got more than she bargained for while perusing the store’s range of metallic balloon letters which, at first glance, appear to be displayed in alphabetical order.

That’s until you get to the start of the second row where ‘k, l, m, n’ have been replaced by another four letters that spell a naughty word beginning with ‘c’ and ending with ‘t’. We think you can fill in the blanks!

“It made me laugh especially ‘cause I remember doing something similar with alphabet magnets in Officeworks once with a friend in Melbourne. We thought we were hilarious!” Cara jokes.

Her fellow Facebook users also saw the funny side of the prank, with several leaving laughing emojis in the comments section.

Just who is responsible for the X-rated stunt, whether that’s a cheeky customer or a mischievous staffer, remains a mystery. The question is, when and where will they strike again?

Meanwhile, a Woolies worker discovered the very same swear word in the unlikeliest of places after a customer placed a home delivery order.

And an Aldi stool left shoppers scandalised thanks to its raunchy product name — but all was not what it seemed.
