The Internet has something for everyone, and that something is a sense of connection to strangers who are perfectly aligned with your own brand of shareable weirdness. Anyway, if you want to see a disgusting photo of an amputated toe, click through.

Select All found the latest rubbernecking post on Tumblr, which involves a user named Cummy Eyelids turning fellow user Royallyoily’s amputated pinky toe into a piece of wearable art/tiny flesh grave.

It was supposedly amputated over a decade ago, though I wouldn’t be at all surprised to read a story about someone cutting off a toe or finger specifically to have it turned into a necklace by someone they met in a chatroom. In fact, people are already asking Cummy Eyelids to do them up:
