The story of Jose Canseco's left middle finger keeps getting stranger.

Canseco shot the finger off while cleaning four guns simultaneously a few weeks back. Doctors were able to re-attach it, but said he would never regain full use of his hand. 

Undetterred, Canseco carried on with his life, tweeting about comets and playing poker. But during a poker game on Thursday night, the finger fell off again, he says.

Gross. So gross. Don't play with guns, kids.
