John Baker runs Baker's Junction Railroad Museum in Smithville, Indiana. The museum, which features a haunted house that takes place in old train cars, actually sounds pretty awesome, but apparently, Baker is in need of money to fix the place up. That being the case, he's doing what any sane person would do: He's selling his thumb. Relax, it got severed before he decided to sell it.
Baker says he'd been holding a saw above his head when his bad leg (this guy has it rough) gave out and his thumb was severed in the fall. Thinking quickly, he threw the thumb into a glass of ice and caught a ride to the nearest hospital, 60 miles away. As it turns out, the thumb was too mangled to be reattached, so Baker had it mummified, set in clear plastic, and put on a keychain. He hopes to sell the thumb for enough to pay for the museum's new metal roof. Where he'll find a buyer willing to pay top dollar, I can't imagine.
