Sourtoe Certificate

On Friday, my Knuckleheads In The News® included an item about a bar in Canada that sells the Sourtoe Cocktail, a drink that comes complete with an actual human toe. Anyone downing the drink while making lip contact with the toe -- but not swallowing it -- gets a certificate. The story came to light after someone made off with the bar's toe, which has since been returned, and that prompted Mike (one of my listeners) to email:

Here's my wife's certificate. [Capt. Dick Stevenson, who signed the certificate] was our boat captain up the Yukon River. Told us he would be at the bar selling shots with certificates. Also, there is a Sourtoe book, if only I could find it.
