George Washington Chicken McNugget sells on eBay for $8,100
DAKOTA CITY, Neb. — A three-year-old McDonald’s Chicken McNugget said to resemble George Washington has sold on eBay for $8,100.
The tiny, fried piece of fast-food chicken that may or may not look like America’s first president rang up 71 bids from 23 bidders, with bidding ending Monday morning.
The McNugget seller was Rebekah Speight of Dakota City, Neb., who explained on the eBay site that she picked it up about three years ago when she took her children to McDonald’s and one particular nugget in their order leaped out at her.
“Sure enough,” she wrote, “it was in the likeness of President George Washington.”
So she stored it in the freezer, where the presidential piece of poultry remained until she decided to auction it off to raise money for a church camp.
Speight told The Sioux City Journal that once she received payment she would ship the nugget off to its new owner — packed in dry ice to preserve it.
