British man gives frostbitten toe to bar

A former British commando has donated his severed toe to a remote Canadian hotel.
Nick Griffiths lost his big toe to frostbite while competing in an extreme winter marathon in 2018.
Mr Griffiths has now sent it to the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City - home of the Sourtoe Cocktail.
The cocktail's famed ingredient is another mummified human toe*.

A local saying goes: "You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips must touch the toe."

From the BBC on a slow news day...

*But which one is his? That'll be the one with pink nail varnish
