McNugget That Looks Like Prez Washington

Heard this story? A three-year-old McDonald’s Chicken McNugget said to resemble George Washington has sold on eBay for $8,100, according to several news reports. Nebraska woman Rebekah Speight said in February that she was auctioning the McNugget to raise money for children at the Sioux City Family Worship Center to go to summer camp: total cost $15,000.

This is just great. There are, idiots or should I say rich idiots, who are willing to shell out money and lots of money for a small bit of meat, that they won’t be able to eat (if they do they might die, 3 year old nugget). They would then showcase that nugget in some glass case for people to see.

Speight said that during a McDonald’s visit with her kids three years ago, she almost trashed the uneaten McNugget before noticing a likeness to the country’s most distinguished forefather. She says that she looked down and laughed when she saw “this portrait of George Washington staring back at me.” She then stashed the McNugget in her freezer, she said. EBay took down the nugget at first, saying it violated its rules regulating expired food, but then the woman got an email saying the company was “willing to make exceptions to help your cause.” The McNugget drew 71 bids from 23 bidders, with bidding ending Monday morning. The auction had 44,795 views, with 1,610 people actively watching the proceedings.

So where’s my chicken tikka piece that looks like Mahathma Gandhi or burger patty that looks like Jawaharlal Nehru.

  1. I Just can’t believe it sold for that much. That is just wild. I better start paying more attention to what my food looks like. I could make a fortune if I find something that looks like Jesus. Or Elvis. Lol.

  2. Well there is that bacon piece that looks like Elvis or that toast with the image of that guy..err what’s that guy from Nazareth…with the cult following….oh yeah Jesus!
