I dont understand why this is a thing. Was it like a dare or something?
The article talks all about the history of the thing.

"You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon."

I was under the impression they had more than just one, but perhaps people have developed a taste for dismembered digits.
I'd be grateful if someone would ELI5 how it is legal to: 1) possess said toe, and 2) swallow said toe. If the answer to both is "because Canada," fine, though I'd be surprised to learn that possession of human body parts and cannibalism aren't big deals. There was an episode of Oddities where the owners had to go through an entire legal rigamarole to see if they could sell a human artifact. Seems like it's a thing, at least in the States.
And now that I think about it, the owners of the Downtown Hotel should contact the Oddities people for a replacement.

Surely this guy should be being hunted down and arrested. After all, he is a cannibal.
