A three-year-old frozen chicken nugget bearing a slight resemblance to the first US president George Washington has been put up for sale eBay.
Rebekah Speights and her husband listed the chicken nugget auction on Monday and it has already received bids of up to $200, despite having more than a week until the auction ends.
The nugget, listed as ‘Rare George Washington Chicken McNugget,’ has been placed on a patriotic American flag with an additional stars and stripes banner.
The family have owned the nugget for three years, but only just decided to sell it on eBay, despite being a “constant source of amusement.”
Ms Speights explained: “Approximately three years ago, I treated my children to “99 cent McNugget Tuesday” and play time at our local McDonald’s.
“As I was cleaning up, I noticed one particular nugget and began to laugh. I picked it up for a closer look, and sure enough it was in the likeness of President George Washington.”
The couple shared a joke about putting the presidential nugget on eBay, but instead stored it in their freezer, where it remained as a private source of hysteria for three years.
Ms Speights hopes to raise funds for the members of the Family Worship Centre in Sioux City to go on a summer camp expedition.
