Doctors offered once to let me keep a fish vertebrae that they'd removed from the middle of my foot (long story involving swimming, a thunderstorm, and jellyfish. Yada, yada).
I declined. Although I was told my grandfather did keep his finger in a jar of alcohol. Take that as you will.

It's not nice to make light of amputation.

Steve, in later years, did gramps give you the finger?

Shades of Christmas Story.
