Did anybody catch this brief item, er, floating around up on the Journal’s website this past Friday? Apparently, a sailor getting ready to move his boat from its slip in the estuary found someone’s lower leg floating around in the water.

Police, who believe the leg may have surfaced as a result of recent dredging, are trying to figure out who it belonged to. They’re reviewing recent missing persons cases, though they believe the leg could also have come from someone who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge or who went missing during a boating outing, the Journal’s Peter Hegarty reported.

Okay everyone, repeat after me: Ewwwwwww
