Workers at the Downtown Hotel Inn in Dawson City Canada are furious after a human severed toe was stolen from the bar.
Like me, you’re probably wondering why a severed toe would be in a bar in the first place. Before reading the article, I assumed it was just being used as some sort of odd bar décor. However, the reality was much more disturbing. It’s used to make a f@#king cocktail! (source)
“The traditional Sourtoe Cocktail — a Klondike-inspired invention — involves a shot of whisky with the digit bobbing in the glass. The toe must touch the brave drinker’s lips.” According to the manager, the “toe was donated by a man who had to have it surgically removed, then cured in salt for six months.”This was our new toe, and it was a really good one. We just started using it this weekend,” she said.”
No, just no. Is this what they do for fun in Dawson City? I know parts of Canada are desolate and you need to pass the time somehow, but couldn’t you just make moonshine and shoot shit in the woods? Who came up with this? I assume that person has a foot fetish. Furthermore, I assume the person who stole it also has a foot fetish. I’m looking your way Rex Ryan!
Still, that really sucks for the bar. Unless you’re close to the Mexican border and deal with crazy drug cartels, human toes probably aren’t easy to come by.
