A long-standing tradition among patrons at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City has been to put a mummified human toe in a drink before quickly downing the alcohol. Dating back to the 1970s.

The "sourtoe" as patrons call it, is black, wrinkled and leathery, mummified in salt before being dunked in drinks. But you're not supposed to swallow the toe, like a man known only as "Josh from New Orleans" did. There's a $500 fine set for anyone who dares digest the digit, but Josh was ready to pay up. He reportedly took the toe in a glass of whiskey, slurped down the toe, and slammed $500 in cash on the bar before casually walking away.

Does anyone know this dude from NOLA? Wow! Watch ...
