One-Legged Man Sells His Severed Finger To Save Haunted Train Museum

by | 29th, September 2011

BUY a finger and save a museum. That’s John Baker’s message. The owner of  Bakers Junction Railroad Museum in Smithville, Indiana, needs cash. And he will raise it by selling his own severed finger.

The advert runs:

“YO! It is a real finger key chain. I no it’s real it’s off my right hand. I cut it off working on Bakers Junction Railroad Museum. It can be seen at The Haunted Train fund raiser for Bakers Junction Railroad Museum. I am a 100% disabled Veteran, I cut my finger off with a skill saw when I was cutting over my head standing on one leg, because I only have one leg.”

Can we buy the leg? How about the toes?

“I was cutting in a bad place and had to hold the saw in my left hand and the saw jammed up and jumped out and cut my finger off as I fell down. They could not sew it back on so I put it in my pocket.I mummified it and put it in plastic. The money goes to paying for the new medal roofs on the 2 century old train station at Bakers Junction Railroad Museum.”

If there proves to be money in severed body parts, night the NHS be saved with a huge raffle?
