Didn't someone steal the toe?
2012-11-05 02:54:58 PM  
Meh, I have no right to be disgusted by this. I eat at McDonald's.
2012-11-05 02:56:15 PM  
Sounds like the original guy reused the toe from drink to drink, but the latest quote hints at the existence of multiple toes.
Do I get to take the toe home with me when I'm done? How do they keep their supply chain going?
2012-11-05 02:58:42 PM  
Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon... with nail polish.
2012-11-05 03:01:27 PM  
That explains those tow trucks making deliveries.

/Shut up, Weasel!
2012-11-05 03:02:16 PM  
No thanks. I'm a tea-toetaler.
2012-11-05 03:03:27 PM  
No thanks, I'm lack-toes intolerant.

A visit from the Health Inspector...
Your taps appear to be crawling with grubs and your restrooms are barely functioning cesspools.  That said, your human remains are properly pickled and packed in dry salts. 
Impressive, I'm going to give you our highest rating.

Probably cause toemaine poisoning

/it's not so much unsanitary as just toe-tally disgusting

It's Canada.

2012-11-05 04:18:49 PM  
Somewhere in the Yukon territory, there lies a toe. A toe with a preserving nature. A toe that will be plucked from its sodium sarcophagus and gingerly placed into a beer glass filled with Champagne. This, my friends, is how the zombie invasion begins.

gopher321: It's Canada.


Oh, I dunno... how about ANYTHING BUT DRINKING TOES.
2012-11-05 04:20:24 PM  
Then again, I suppose I'd raise a toest to any person I see trying this.
2012-11-05 04:33:51 PM  
I can't see this getting a toehold on the mainstream.

I don't know, it doesn't seem that bad, I'd toetally try it.

Great. Now I have to learn all new "This little piggy" lyrics.
2012-11-05 06:01:30 PM  
Article doesn't mention the price of the drink. I bet it costs an arm and a leg.
2012-11-05 06:13:22 PM  
Bow if a woman at the bar doesn't like your chatting her up, you can ask her to toe the line.
2012-11-05 06:14:02 PM  
Er... "Now".

Tr0mBoNe: Didn't someone steal the toe?

Correct. It's also been consumed and otherwise destroyed. They are on toe #8. The last one was donated by a guy that learned the hard way not to mow the lawn in flip-flops.

2012-11-05 06:23:44 PM  
Why does this sound familiar? Have I heard of this before?
2012-11-05 06:24:32 PM  
Vancouver supplies almost unlimited toes from the severed feet that wash up regularly in the harbour.
2012-11-05 06:24:34 PM  
Gad. Someone's always got to be more-hipster-than-thou.
2012-11-05 06:27:45 PM  
Now tell me, do you Yanks still want to move to Canada?

/not to mention the Federally required citizenship tests for canoe operation and igloo construction.

Dear Super-Rich:

Please stop beating around the bush and just start eating the poor, already. We know you're bored with your money and looking for something to do, but this waiting for it is killing us. We know you're going to harvest our organs, first for fun and later for survival, but the thing that gets us is the morbid trickle of news stories of your latest fads. Just get over your squeamishness and go for it.


Everyone who would never contemplate drinking a beverage with human remains in it.

Constable Clitoris would have concerns about this cocktail.

This seems like cheating. If I'm going to suck a complete strangers toe in some bar bumfark Canada I want to be made to feel cheep and dirty, to really have to work for it

I've been on Fark for many years and seen a lot of disgusting things, but this one...ugh, i couldn't get past the picture. That's nasty.

Has anyone pointed out yet that "medical alcohol" is not ethanol, but could be anything from Isoprophyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol) to Formalin, any of which you don't want to ingest?

I will never drink a cocktail with meat in it. Human meat, is paradoxically even less likely than never and uncooked human meat can just get the fark away from me.
2012-11-05 06:40:07 PM  
Not to go all 'hipster', but the Sourtoe Cocktail Club is old news. Hell, QI mentioned it.
