Watch This Man Swallow A Human Toe
For those who’ve ever wondered what there is to do in Canada besides hockey and riding meese, just head over to The Downtown Hotel in Yukon where shooting back preserved human toes is apparently a thing. Yes, for $5, you can ask the bartender for a severed human toe soaked in a shot of whiskey, aka the Sourtoe Cocktail.
Since 1973, (thanks to Louie Liken, a 1920′s rum runner who lost his toe) patrons have taken on the challenge of downing said cocktail while letting the toe touch their lips. However, if you accidentally swallow the toe, it’s a $500 fine.
In the video below, a brave soul known as Josh Clark is featured drinking the infamous shot of Yukon Gold whiskey poured over a preserved human toe. Clark swiftly takes down the whisky, then proceeds to swallow the entire toe, even moving it around his mouth to properly consume it. After chasing it all with beer, he triumphantly throws five Canadian bills on the table.
The fine has been raised to $2,500 since then, and the bar is currently on the lookout for a spare toe.
