It seems that one James Wood, a citizen of The Palmetto State, lost his leg in a 2004 plane crash in which his father was killed. Because he wanted to have it buried with him after he died, Wood kept the leg in a freezer for a while, then dried it in his front yard, and finally put it inside a barbecue smoker for safekeeping. This is where the story starts to get weird. Wood fell behind on his rental payments to the storage facility where he was keeping the smoker, so the landlord auctioned off the contents. When Shannon Whisnant, the purchaser of the smoker, got it home and opened the cover, he was somewhat startled by what he discovered. Thinking the leg "might have been part of a missing person or somebody's ex-wife," he called police, who took the limb to a local funeral home, where it now reposes. Wood wants his leg back, but Whisnant isn't giving in. He claims that when he bought the smoker he also bought what was inside it. According to the news agency Agence France Presse, Whisnant is charging people money - $3 for adults, $1 for kids - to peek inside the smoker, even though the leg is no longer in it. Meanwhile Whisnant has offered to share custody of the leg with Wood, but Wood wants no part of that deal. "He's making a freak show out of it," Wood said.
