£5,000 for George Washington the chicken McNugget? You'd be mad not to

6 March 2012

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.

    Is it from a male or female chicken? If it's male and you ate it would it be akin to popping George Washington cock in your mouth?

    "Rebekah sold the McNugget as part of an attempt to raise $15,000 and send 50 children to summer church camp in Sioux City" Bullshit, she said that to make more money. Bitch.

    I yanked out a bogey the other day that looked a bit like Ken Dodd. Never thought to put it on ebay.

    > send 50 children to summer church camp in Sioux City. Won't someone think of the children?

    Looks dodgy to me - notice how they face opposite directions. I'll need to see the obverse of the nugget befoer I part with any of my hard earned (no really it is) cash.

    I once kept chickens. But a fox broke into the coop and attacked them. So I bummed it.

    I done a turd what looked like Jimmy Hill. Do they want to buy that too? All proceeds go to sending 20 kids to some camp or something like that.

    Looks more like a character from our flagship show Downturn "Fucking" Abbey, eh?

    When Ronald Reagan died, I cut his head off and stuffed it in my freezer. Now it looks like a chicken nugget.

    £5000 or $5000? There's a substantial difference, considering it's a chicken nugget
