Yukon bar patron swallows famous sourtoe, pays fine, leaves town

An unidentified man took the local "sourtoe cocktail," which features a mummified human toe, and willfully swallowed it, according to witnesses.

There's a $500 fine for swallowing the toe, which Lee said is meant as a "deterrent." On Saturday, an unidentified man entered the bar and approached Lee's station with a shot of whisky.

"This guy popped it in his mouth... takes $500 out of his pocket and slams it on the table and starts walking away."

Now that their toe has been swallowed, Lee and his fellow captains are on the hunt for a new one. Most in the past have been donated through someone's will, he said. One was also given to the bar after it was cut off by a lawn mower.

    On that course bed of salt, it doesn't look as bad as the textual description implies.

    I suppose if serving a toe as part of a Bloody Mary the toe would need to be skewered. Might look less appetizing that way.

    Drink it fast or drink it slow, the lips have gotta touch the toe.
