That's really sad. All that money and at his age he felt he needed surgery.

Because it's the DM. Accuracy isn't their thing. He was probably actually having his ingrown toenail done, come to think of it.

I've now seen the same story in the Jerusalem Post and the Jewish Chronicle.

It's not clear whether he was touched by His Noodly Appendage, but a Florida man (where else?) was arrested for "belligerent" eating of pasta.

Oh, Canada...

Quote
When Adam Gerle went to work one morning this week, he was thrilled to finally find a parcel with a frozen big toe in it.

Gerle is the general manger of the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City, Canada, which is world-renowned for an extremely gross traditional drink - the Sourtoe Cocktail.

Since 1973, visitors of the Yukon bars have been challenged to drink a shot of whiskey with a mummified human toe floating inside. To join the club -- and get a certificate from the bar -- the drinkers' lips must touch the toe. Over 86,000 Sourtoe Cocktails have been served since.

The bit about the donor sounds about normal for a bootneck, though. :demon:

Quote
The latest big toe to reach the hotel belonged to Nick Griffiths, a former British Marine who lost it during a winter ultra marathon in 2018, according to a statement by Downtown Hotel.

Griffiths, 47, dropped out of the 2018 Yukon Arctic Ultra after he got frostbite on his left foot due to temperatures dropping to minus 40.

While in hospital, the Briton offered to donate the toes to the hotel "in the hopes of returning to the Yukon to do the Sourtoe Cocktail with his own toe," the statement says.

There's a rather entertaining travelogue documentary by A Armstrong, Esq. in which he circumnavigates the Arctic in the fashion of a goodly BRITISH adventurer and samples a Sourtoe cocktail.

Speaking of alligators, and Florida...

At least using an alligator is slightly less environmentally irresponsible than the Arizona Border Patrol agent who shot at an explosive target in 2017, starting a wildfire...  :facepalm:
