Schoolboy Finds a Jarful of Fingers

A French schoolboy was digging behind the gymnasium of his grade school when he unearthed a jarful of human fingers. The four fingers had been sealed in a jar of alcohol and were slightly decomposed but in good condition.

After police made some calls, the relative of a former carpenter at the school said the man had lost four fingers on the site some 30 years prior. Police think this may have solved the mystery, but have not been able to contact the carpenter, who moved away years ago.

Now that fingers can be reattached, French police should expect a call from the man, asking, "CAN I GET THEM DIGITS!?"

(That was a long way to go for that joke.)
