Is this a chicken or a teddy bear? Why not both?

New Orleans residents might have spotted a strange buy on Facebook Marketplace recently – a teddy bear seemingly created with pieces of raw chicken sewn together.

The article goes on to state the following:

The post advertised that for just $35, the seller can make two fresh “chicken teddy bears.” If the buyer provided their own chicken, they could lower the price to $25.

“Edible and can be cooked,” the post bragged in all capital letters. “Great family activity.”

It continued: “Can also make clothes.”

The post quickly went viral, leading some to point out the sale was fake.

The raw chicken teddy bear, which went viral for the first time in 2013, is actually a piece of art by Russian artist Viktor Ivanov, who said at the time, “On the whole, it made me feel disgusted the entire time I was making it.”

He added: “One should not know what it’s like to sew through skin.”

The account that made the original posting to their local Facebook Marketplace has also since been deleted.
