July 26, 2010: Sourtoe Cocktail

That pilot from yesterday's IOtD could probably use a Sourtoe cocktail, from Dawson City.

Quote:
Established in 1973, the Sourtoe Cocktail has become a Dawson City tradition and is exactly what is sounds like: An actual human toe that has been dehydrated and preserved in salt is served in a drink.


Quote:
The first toe is said to have belonged to a miner and rum runner named Louie Liken, who had his frostbitten appendage amputated in the 1920s. Liken preserved it in a jar of alcohol in his cabin, where Stevenson found it some 50 years later.

Unfortunately, the first toe only lasted only seven more years after its discovery. According to the Sourtoe Cocktail Club, "In July 1980, a miner named Garry Younger was trying for the Sourtoe record. On his thirteenth glass of Sourtoe champagne, his chair tipped over backwards, and he swallowed the toe. Sadly, Toe #1 was not recovered."

Since then, seven more toes have been donated to the bar. Number two was given after an amputation due to an inoperable corn; number three was from a victim frostbite (it was also swallowed accidentally); four was an anonymous toe (stolen by a hunter); toes five and six were donated by a Yukon old-timer in return for free drinks for his nurses; toe seven was an amputation due to diabetes; and toe eight arrived in a jar of alcohol with the message, "Don't wear open-toe sandals while mowing the lawn."
In order to get credit, and a certificate suitable for framing, the toe has to touch your lips.

Seriously disturbed people.

It's like some mad daisy chain of Smilie vomit...^^^



casimendocina  Monday Jul 26 04:52 AM

Once again I'd like to quote SG: "[heave]"



spudcon  Monday Jul 26 06:12 AM

Some people have no class. Rotten old toes should be eaten in a sauce of brown sugar and mustard, dipped in smegma.



sweetwater  Monday Jul 26 08:22 AM

No matter how drunk I was, I would never become so enamored of a certificate that I'd allow a pickled toe to bob about in my drink. Though come to think of it, cocktail and a highball suggest that different body parts be used.



Trilby  Monday Jul 26 08:28 AM

I was drunk enough to do an oyster shot (yeeeeeech!) back in '94, but I hope I would draw the line at toes.



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 26 08:51 AM

Buncha morans, if'n you ask me. BLECH.

When exactly does it become cannibalism? Where's the taboo start?



Sheldonrs  Monday Jul 26 09:50 AM

Who doesn't like a vodka and toenic once in a while.



Shawnee123  Monday Jul 26 10:23 AM

I'm not sour-y about ur toe.



ZenGum  Monday Jul 26 10:27 AM

New recipe for a rusty nail.


This is messed up.



newtimer  Monday Jul 26 10:40 AM

>> Insert sour cameltoe joke here <<



Spexxvet  Monday Jul 26 10:52 AM

When you finish drinking the toe, they give you the finger.



Tick  Monday Jul 26 11:01 AM

Thanks for sharing that, xoxoxoBruce. As soon as I stop gagging, I'll go find you a nice goatse.



Sheldonrs  Monday Jul 26 11:15 AM

Beware if they start serving Spotted Dick there.



Diaphone Jim  Monday Jul 26 12:46 PM

This one may have needed to go in the WARNING box.
I haven't avoided looking at an IOTD a second time since the starved and neglected dog Hobo a couple of years ago.
I was just about to get breakfast. Now I'm not so sure. Thanks Bruce.
Funny comments though.

I have reasonable evidence that Zip has eaten Spotted Dick and lived.
Yeah... not there though....


Razzmatazz13  Monday Jul 26 01:05 PM

Anyone else notice that the majority of the toes in question have something terribly WRONG with them? I mean, most of them had to be amputated due to something disgusting...

If you're going to have human body parts in your food, wouldn't you want them to at least be HEALTHY human body parts? BLECHHH



Pico and ME  Monday Jul 26 01:09 PM

I cant even look at that picture.

Yeah! Or even attractive, healthy, human body parts. Like what if they could get Angelina Jolie's toe?

Or if matt Damon is willing, I know what I'd use as a swizzle stick.

You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me.
... Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon... with nail polish. These fucking amateurs.

I am just grateful that today isn't Friday, what with the recipes and all...

I find all of this toe-tally discusting!

This is where we need to toe the line.

Thank you for bringing back the REAL Cellar Image of the Day. I was afraid a few days ago. I am calm now. Bruce, keep up the good work!



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Jul 26 11:55 PM

Easier said than done, jano.
