(Newser) – You may want to examine your next Happy Meal more closely. A Chicken McNugget bearing a resemblance to our first president has sold on eBay for $8,100, the Sioux City Journal reports. An Iowa mom observed the similarity in a McDonald's while picking up after her kids. She popped it in the freezer, where it stayed for three years, before putting it up for sale.

Some 45,000 people viewed the auction online, bringing media attention from "Australia, the United Kingdom, Pakistan—just all over," Rebekah Speight says. The money will support a trip to summer camp for 50 kids in a local church congregation. The lesson in all this, Speight says: "Sometimes it's OK if children don't finish."
