Somebody should really get Nick Griffiths a drink! You’d just have to make sure it’s not one with his own toe in it!
Griffiths had three of his toes amputated after suffering frost bite while competing in the Yukon Arctic Ultra Race in February. Now he’s keeping his nubs in jars until he can get them to Dawson City’s Downtown Hotel where they’d put them good use.
The hotel is famous for serving up a unique drink with a human toe as the special ingredient. It’s called the sourtoe cocktail. It’s one part whiskey and one part mummified appendage.
There’s even a toe captain who will give you an award if your mouth touches the toe. The catch is, you can’t swallow it or you’ll be fined $2500!
