Canadian toe theft raises hackles

You can't make this shit up:
A barman in Canada's Yukon Territory is furious that the key ingredient to the famed "Sourtoe Cocktail" - a mummified human toe - has been stolen.
The severed toe, served in alcoholic drinks at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City, was stolen by a Quebec resident, according to "Toe Captain" Terry Lee.
"Toes are very hard to come by," Mr Lee said. "I'm really attached to it."
The toe is estimated to be worth CA$80,000 (US$60,000 / £48,000) and is part of local folklore.
And here you thought Canadians were an easy-going and far-from-bizarre lot.
