The FBI is auctioning off the jewelry and assorted other baubles Raffaello Follieri gave to his girlfriend Anne Hathaway before he was arrested for perpetrating a Ponzi scheme that involved the Pope (a mortal sin if ever there was one). On their inventory list is this object, which the agency describes as “a Cartier figurine.” But a figurine of what? Intel Chris thinks it could be a duck. Intel Dan and Jessica think that it’s way too lumpy to be a duck, and agree that it could be a mushroom, though what it mostly looks like is, kind of, well, a penis. But maybe it’s just us. What do you think? Did Follieri give Anne Hathaway his dick in a box? And if not, then what is this thing? Your knowledge, in the comments.
UPDATE: Bill Bastone of the Smoking Gun has emailed us another picture of the figurine, from an alternate angle.
As you can see, the underside of the potential D is inscribed with … something?
Bastone also notes that it was was found in a South Bronx storage bin rented by Follieri.
