Prop fingered in 911 body-part call in Cambridge

Cambridge Police say officers responded to Marcella Street shortly before 7:30 p.m. yesterday after somebody called 911 to report finding a severed finger.

"After a brief investigation it was deemed that the possible body part was in fact a 'prop' and not an actual body part," police say.

UHUB's "Headless body in topless bar" headline moment. Too bad it wasn't found in a parts drawer at a body shop.

This is why it's important to at least poke it with a stick first.

Well obviously, freaking out a stranger who finds it in the street.

There is a reason that stage magic is often called prestiDIGITation -- no seriously, there are prop fingers that you can use to give the illusion of how you are holding something while doing something else entirely.
