Video shows man swallowing human toe in Klondike cocktail ritual

AnchorageAugust 30, 2013 

CBC News has obtained a video clip showing a man who identified himself as Josh Clark from Louisiana downing the human toe he was only supposed to "kiss" in the famed Sourtoe Cocktail ritual at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson, Yukon. It's apparent from the video that the keepers of the toe are stunned by what has just happened. Read more about the Saturday incident in the Yukon News. Warning to the squeamish: Some are calling the stunt "cannibalism."
