Zelda Fan Auctions Ocarina-Shaped Piece of Chicken

When a Zelda fan discovered an ocarina-shaped chicken tender at McDonald’s, he thought it was a treasure worthy of selling on eBay. He was wrong.

Some people see Abraham Lincoln or The Virgin Mary in their junk food. Others, meanwhile, see iconic videogame items. That’s what happened to a resident of Bloomington, Minnesota, who ventured into a McDonald’s craving some deep friend chicken substance and instead emerged with what he thought was an utter treasure.

“The shining beam of light accompanied by the melodic Zelda jingle blared out of the chicken select treasure box that was handed to me by a late night, tired, acne infested teenage boy as I opened it and discovered what lay in wait for me,” eBay user 0iz0 wrote. What he had was a chicken select that looked almost (almost) like the ocarina from the Legend of Zelda series.

Naturally, 0iz0’s first thought wasn’t to eat the thing, but to try to make some money off of it on eBay. “Anyone who is a true Zelda fan must get this precious gem of unintentional craftsmanship!” he declared. Don’t pass this opportunity, for I am certain you will be able to make great music and friends with this golden nugget!”

This time around, one man’s treasure was indeed everyone else’s garbage. Though the tender does bear some likeness to the ocarina (or maybe Boba Fett’s ship from the side), I guess the $25 starting bid was too much to swallow for any potential buyers. He even offered free shipping, but oh well. Maybe he’ll put it up for auction again, hopefully after freezing the thing.
