Chicken McNugget resembling George Washington up for sale

| No Comments

A Chicken McNugget bearing a striking resemblance to founding father George Washington is still up for sale, according to the L.A. Times.

According to the New York Times, Rebekah Speight of Dakota City, Neb., made headlines this week when she almost sold the McDonald's delicacy for $8,100 on Ebay. But the winning bidder apparently changed their mind.

Speight was disappointed at the turn of events because she planned to use the money from the auction to send 50 children to a church summer camp, according to the New York Times.

According to the L.A. Times, she told the Sioux City Journal that she noticed the startling resemblance between the McNugget and George Washington when she was cleaning up after her kids. She thought it may be worth something, so she wrapped it up and put it in her freezer 3 years ago.

The Journal said the Ebay page has had plenty of interest from buyers and observers. The item has received 44,795 views and more than 1,600 people watched the auction unfold, according to the L.A. Times.
