Sour Toe Ritual in Dawson City

There's a rite in Dawson City where people pay $10 to drink strong liquor with a frozen human toe dropped in it. Jack Daniels is the drink of choice for men. Women choose Grande Marnier with their toe. The toe has to touch your lips for the rite to count. I watched one guy gulp his drink down, toe and all, then slowly pull the toe out of his mouth. Ewww.

CBC Radio recently ran a radio interview with one of the bartenders that supervised a Sour Toe ritual that went very wrong. Listen to the broadcast... it's hilarious. : )
