George Washington Chicken McNugget Up For Auction

Via the Des Moines Register, has the essence of America ever been better embodied by a single pocket-size object than in the case of the appearance of George Washington’s visage in this McDonald’s McNugget, sold on eBay with the proceeds going to an Iowa bible camp?

  1. That’s nothing. I once saw Robert Anton Wilson’s grinning face in a cauliflower.

    Really? George Washington? All I see is a snarling Rottweiler with a small animal in its mouth.

    Is this what George Washington, one of the founding patriarchs of the United States, the first president who willfully stepped down to let democratic processes flourish, is reduced to: a processed piece of meat worth less than a dollar, but is being sold for over $200? And you thought “The Metal Years” was the “Decline of Western Civilization.”

    I don’t see it.

  5. I’m waiting until McDonald’s completes the Mount Rushmore edition.  A masterpiece of meat.  Then I’ll eat them.  It’s the next Shamrock Shake & BBQ Sandwich estimate.  And for a limited time only.

    It’s actually selling at $4,400 at present check. This would obviously never happen if 100% of the proceeds weren’t going to charity. What’s more amusing is the listing on eBay comically mocking the auction with a George Washington head taped onto a chicken nugget with duct tape. Check out the pics, read the listing and the questions and answers section. They’re all pretty hilarious.
