导读:近日,美国内布拉斯加州一女子Rebekah Speight将三年前吃剩的麦当劳炸鸡块在eBay网上拍卖出了8100美元,只因该鸡块长得像华盛顿总统。大约三年前,Rebekah带孩子们去当地麦当劳,最后清理的时候发现有一块炸鸡块长得很像华盛顿总统头像,于是带回了家一直冷冻着。她决定拍卖是为了给当地的暑期教会露营项目的孩子们筹款,所拍款项将全部捐赠给该项目。



A Nebraska woman has sold a three-year-old McDonald's Chicken McNugget that resembles President George Washington for $8,100 on eBay.

The Sioux City Journal in Iowa, USA, says bidding ended on Monday morning.

Rebekah Speight of Dakota City sold the McNugget to raise money for a drive to raise $15,000 and send 50 children to summer church camp in Sioux City. She did not disclose who won the auction.

Ms Speight says her children didn't eat the chicken during a McDonald's visit three years ago. She was about to toss it, then spotted Washington's resemblance. Ms Speight stashed the McNugget in her freezer.

eBay had temporarily taken down the auction last month because it violated rules regulating expired food.

She later received an email saying the site was "willing to make exceptions to help your cause."

On the auction page for the McNugget Ms Speight wrote: "Approximately 3 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. I decided to take it home and show my husband this hysterical find.

"When he arrived home, I pulled it out of the freezer and he could not believe his eyes. We shared a moment of laughter as we joked about putting it on eBay. Then back in the freezer it went.

"The students of Family Worship Center in Sioux City, Iowa are in the process of trying to raise $15,000 for Church Camp this summer. My husband and I felt led to auction this “President George Washington Chicken McNugget” as part of our fund-raising effort. 100% of the money raised will go to Family Worship Center in Sioux City, Iowa.

"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."
