Human body parts in a cocktail?

It is a question that seems to come out of The Twilight Zone.

Up in the Yukon (Canada) there existed (exists) a cocktail made with a real severed human toe called The Sour Toe Cocktail.

It's like a Halloween cocktail just came to life and a sordid life at that!

My question is: Do other drinks or cocktails exist or have existed with other real human body parts?

Unless you count Body Shots, then it would seem the answer to this question is a firm no.

But, there are cases of body parts being used in cocktails - fortunately, of other animal species. This article references an octopus tentacle used as a garnish, as well as another that uses Sea Urchin gonads... The article also references the Sour Toe cocktail.

I have also heard of using rooster feathers as a garnish to make a "Cock's Tail cocktail" but, I can't find a reference to that anywhere... Finally, this article details a pig's blood cocktail made in the UK.

It seems that, for now, the Sour Toe is a one-of-a-kind... Honestly, I myself would prefer that things stay this way (barf ;)
