Hey, I’m only kidding!Â Please don’t report me to the National Association of Personal Finance Bloggers.Â I don’t

Back in February I found a Chicken McNugget that was the spitting image of Connecticut.Â At the time I asked my dear readers to be on the look out for other chicken nuggets that resembled US states, Puerto Rico, Guam and/or the Canadian provinces.
