£5,000 for George Washington the chicken McNugget? You'd be mad not to
Got a spare $5,000 lying around? If so, the bad news is that you’ve just missed out on the chance to invest it in a unique historical artifact that has just been sold in that prestigious international auction house, eBay.
Take a closer look - it’s a three-year-old chicken McNugget that supposedly looks like George Washington.
Rebekah Speight is the lucky lady who found the tasty miracle, storing it in her freezer until the time was right to try and flog it for as much cash as possible. Rebekah sold the McNugget as part of an attempt to raise $15,000 and send 50 children to summer church camp in Sioux City.
Her listing for the chewy artefact said: “By bidding on this rare President George Washington Chicken McNugget...not only will you have an opportunity to be the new owner of this rare find, but you will be investing in the lives of children.”
We’re almost in tears here, and we haven't even had the privilege of smelling or licking it.
