Ladies and Gentlemen — the Pareidolia of the United States, George Washington (UPDATE: Sold $8100)

Does this Chicken McNugget look like George Washington to you?

A Nebraska woman is auctioning a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget that she believes resembles President George Washington.

A check of eBay on Wednesday shows one bid for $100. The auction ends next week.

Speights says the McNugget almost became a snack during a visit to a Sioux City McDonald’s three years ago. Her children didn’t eat the chicken and she was about to toss it when she saw Washington’s resemblance.

What is it with food resembling things and auctioning them off? Remember the Virgin Mary toast that sold for $28,000?

Silly pareidolia.

UPDATE: (6-Mar-2012) The food item has sold for an astounding $8100. I know, it’s ridiculous but, there is a bit of hope… the money will be used for charity – to send 50 kids to camp. (Unfortunately, it appears to be a bible camp instead of a critical thinking camp which would have been FAR more ironic.)

    This is a great business. Look through your old sock drawer, or what ever, and find something that reminds you of something else. Then sell it on ebay. I like it.
