A patron waits to drink the Sourtoe Cocktail, a shot of whisky containing a dehydrated human toe, as the rules are displayed on the table, in Dawson City, Yukon, in a July 1, 2018, file photo.

DAWSON CITY, Yukon — A donation that an expert in Yukon happily describes as disgusting has arrived in Whitehorse , destined to become the centrepiece of a bizarre cocktail.

The frostbitten big toe of former British Marine Nick Griffiths now belongs to the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City after Griffiths donated the digit to the Sourtoe Cocktail collection.

It continues , with some more irony that none of you will understand ! …

The Bolton , England , resident originally planned to donate three toes amputated in March 2018 after he suffered frostbite during the Yukon Arctic Ultra , a 483-kilometre race that follows the Yukon Quest trail.

I’m thinkin’ of a certain Englishman from Bolton , Ontario ! …

Griffiths was in a Whitehorse hospital when he learned about the Sourtoe Cocktail from a nurse who had visited Dawson City , and he joined the exclusive sourtoe club by drinking a shot of whisky with a mummified human toe in it.

The story carries on with some eyebrow raisin’ , snicker worthy statements ;

It’s now being mummified in rock salt in preparation for use in the cocktail …

The hotel couldn’t be happier with what Gerle calls the “ toe-nation ”…

Big toes are “ hard to come by ”…

Terry Lee , Toe Master at the Downtown Hotel said …“ We have been waiting for a new big toe for a while so this is exciting news indeed ”… ‘ Toe Master ‘ !!! …

“ The big toes are the most disgusting and popular with the customers ”…

“ It’s also extra special coming from Nick and we look forward to welcoming him to Dawson City where he can claim the rare distinction of shooting his own toe ” he said.

“ The Downtown Hotel plans to bring Griffiths up later this summer after the toe is preserved and ready to go. They will ‘ foot ‘ the bill of course ” the hotel statement said …

While perusing others’ blogrolls …The Abode of McThag …

Short one … But the last paragraph is a good chuckle …

Getting old is not for sissies and that’s because it comes with unexpected things …

Like rashes where you’ve never gotten them before because things … uh … lay differently now than when you were young.

Rashes on sensitive parts because a fold of skin is rolling over instead of wrinkling up.

You get no sympathy for a heat rash on your pecker from a wife with EE boobs , by the way … She will womansplain the proper application of corn starch to the affected area while saying she’s been dealing with this shit since she was 14 ! …
