The McNugget had been in Rebekah Speights' freezer for three years when a sermon inspired her to sell it to raise money for a church summer camp.

A Nebraska woman is auctioning a McDonald’s chicken McNugget that she says is the spitting image of President George Washington.

Rebekah Speights of Dakota City, Neb. is selling the patriotic poultry piece on eBay to raise money for a church summer camp, according to the Sioux City Journal.

Speights said she almost trashed the McNugget three years ago after a meal at a Sioux City McDonald’s.

"I looked down at the McNugget and just started laughing," Speights said. "I saw this portrait of George Washington staring back at me."

The McNugget had been in Speights' freezer for three years when a sermon at the Sioux City Family Worship Center inspired her to auction it.

"It's not one of those things you think would get money, but people put crazy stuff on there (eBay) all the time," Speights said. "For me, it's more the nature of raising money for the kids and not about the McNugget."

Either way, her hunch was right — there is currently one $100 bid on eBay for the presidential nugget. The auction ends next week.
