Man Sells His Amputated Thumb to Fundraise to Save Haunted Train Museum
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.
