Canadian Mounties looking for missing toe essential to hotel’s specialty drink

Here’s a story to dip your toe in.

A patron at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada stole a mummified toe after drinking the hotel’s specialty drink, the Sourtoe Cocktail, last Saturday night.

The drink combines the dehydrated little piggy with whiskey — but really, any drink you want. The only rule is that the toe must touch your lips when you drink it. The brave drinkers then get a certificate of their achievement.

The fine for stealing or swallowing the toe is a whopping $2,500 — the fine the frisky thief must pay if he doesn’t return it. The toe thief left behind a vital clue: the Sourtoe Cocktail certificate with his name on it.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, also known as the Mounties, are on the case — they’re looking for tips for the whereabouts of the thief and the toe.

According to Atlas Obscura, the toe has been swallowed several times. Back when the fine was just $500, a man swallowed the toe and plopped the money on the table. He must’ve been hungry as well as thirsty.

You can still get the cocktail if you so choose, there is always a backup toe, but the hotel just really likes that one.
