Proposals are a moment designed to last forever and there's hours spent agonising over how, when and where to do it.

For one loved-up couple, that sentiment has never rung more true.

After getting down on one knee and sharing a photo of the moment with their families, one mother-in-law decided to capture the moment forever in a gold pendant.

But the piece of jewellery replicating the proposal in a park had an unexpected X-rated result.

"My mother-in-law thought it was a good idea to get a sculpture of this beautiful moment," Instagram account Awkward Family Moments captioned a side-by-side snap of the proposal and the matching gold piece of art.

While the photograph clearly shows a man getting down on one knee, one arm holding out a ring, the other relaxed across his bent knee — the silhouette style art makes his innocent limb look like a long penis.

Naturally, the internet has been in stitches over the blunder.

"That's an indecent proposal," one said.

"Well damn I bet she said yes!" another teased.


"She's gasping at the sight of that … engagement ring," one scoffed.

Others didn't spot the blunder immediately, but when they saw it, it couldn't be unseen.

"At first I was like, 'why is this awkward? This is cute!' Then I was like, oh never mind," one laughed.

One wrote: "That took me way too long to figure out."

"I didn't see it at first but omg," another agreed.

While many saw the touching sentiment behind the "sculpture", they still declared it a "disaster".

"Not sure it's a sculpture, 100% sure it's a disaster," a follower wrote.

"Well, this is unfortunate," another said.

Thankfully, the people of the internet had a few helpful suggestions for the newly engaged couple, telling them a pair of tin scissors would fix the mistake easily.

"Just snap it off with tin snips," one suggested.

"Cut off the hand and it's cute," another said.

More X-rated mistakes

Social media has become a treasure trove for viral blunders of the raunchy variety. Last week, a teenager from California took to Twitter to reveal the "stupid" X-rated mistake she made in a text to her mum.

The blunder was only pointed out when Ella Martine's mum texted back, clearly horrified.

"Mum's been asking for pics of my new room … finally sent one … I'm so stupid," she wrote.

Accompanying the tweet were two photos, one she sent her mum — and another zoomed in to reveal something clipped to her wooden-framed bedhead.

"Nice!," she texted back, along with a thumbs up emoji.

But then a second and a third message came.

"Except for the handcuffs???

"What's up with that?"

Despite the internet blowing up over the hilarious mistake, it seems Ella's mum didn't see the funny side, as a series of texts revealed she instructed her daughter to "remove them", slamming them as "super tacky".

Earlier this month, a mum went viral after spotting a hilarious X-rated typo on her Kmart slow cooker.

The Newcastle shopper took to the Kmart Hacks & Decor Facebook group to point out the unfortunate mistake, asking members of the group if they could spot the typo too.

"Anyone else see what's wrong in this picture? #welldonekmart #idonthaveoneofthosesorry," she wrote.

The woman shared an image of the appliance's warning instructions that read: "C*ck only in this container."

It was clearly meant to read "cook".

The woman's post prompted another Kmart shopper to check her slow cooker, and she also discovered the error. Photo / Facebook

Another mum was "mortified" when she accidentally sent a racy snap of her booty to a tradie when trying to organise new carpets to be fitted.

Danie Cain, 31, took the cheeky photo after a naked sunbaking session — and while the X-rated photo was meant to go to her new love interest, she embarrassingly ended up hitting send to the wrong person.

The unsuspecting recipient was the man set to fit her new carpets. He received the bum-baring selfie along with a string of photos of Danie's hallway carpet.

After realising her mistake, she sent a flurry of apologetic messages to the unsuspecting tradie who took the saucy blunder very well.

"OMG, omg, omg, I'm so sorry I didn't mean to click that last pic," she said as soon as she realised her error.

She then explained she'd "burned" her bum while sunbaking and had taken a selfie to see how bad it was.
