If you’re looking for easy money, it might be time to start examining your food. Rebecca Speight from Dakota City, Neb. sold a George Washington-shaped chicken McNugget on eBay for a whopping $8,100, reports Sioux City Journal’s Nick Hytrek

She’d kept the leftover nugget in her freezer for nearly three years. When she realised it was a spitting image of the nation’s first president, she put it up for bidding, then used the proceeds to help children from Family Worship centre in Sioux City attend summer camp.

Will this spark a new trend? We’re sure it’s fake, but this Jay Leno McNugget listed on eBay is still pretty funny.
