We comes across the most expensive claims of the most bizarre of things on a daily basis. Most of these are fake, some cannot be proven. Some are just too ludicrous to be true. Nevertheless, we faithfully bring these to you, so that you can see for yourself just how crazy a place this world can be.
Take this George Washington Chicken McNugget for instance. We had to stare at the nugget for several minutes before agreeing that there might just be a slight resemblance to Mr. Washington. However whether it is the Nebraskan woman (Rebekah Speight) who actually spotted the nugget and saved it for three years or the buyer who decided to pay $8,100 for a 1000 day old frozen McNugget; you tell us who deserves the ‘ You cant be Serious ‘ award.
The sale has even spurred on a series of sellers who are now offering everything from Thomas Jefferson to a Santa Claus look-alike McNuggets on eBay. The auction had 44,795 views with 1,610 people watching and 71 bids from 23 bidders.
Ed’s note: We have received word just prior to publishing this article that the winner of the auction has now refused to make payment since Rebekah could not guarantee that the nugget would remain frozen and retain its shape through shipping. The winner of the auction lives overseas. As per eBay rules, Rebekah will now offer the nugget for the second highest bidder which at $8000 pretty much holds up the most expensive record.
