Alive! – The incredible story of one shipwreck survivor

Phil Meegut on board HMS Fat Guy

When his ship the SS Fat Guy went down in heavy seas off the coast of India, everyone feared that Captain Phil Meegut and his crew of ten men had all drowned. So imagine the surprise and delight of six fishermen who discovered the castaway Captain, struggling to survive on a tiny deserted island almost two years after his ship was lost at sea.

“We sail passed island on our way home,” explained Fillipino Fisherman Eet Chikunfeet (29). “Someone say, ‘what that’ and point to big pink man, sun bathing on the beach. So we go pick him up.”

What is even more incredible in this almost unbelievable tale of survival is that unlike Tom Hank’s character in the movie Cast Away, who got really skinny and ended up talking to a volley ball, Captain Meegut was in great spirits.

“You really have to marvel at his ability to survive,” said Coast Guard Commander Gail Force (39). “He put all his skills down to Bear Grylls, apparently he saw one episode of Man vs Wild on the Discovery Channel just before his fateful trip.  It’s absolutely incredible what he learned considering the island he was found on is basically a rock with a couple of palm trees on it. He was so successful at finding food that he gained 150 pounds during his ordeal.”

It is believed that the entire crew of the SS Fat Guy originally managed to make it to the island and their clothes and personal possessions have been found in a pile under a palm tree. However the current whereabouts of the ten-man crew remains a mystery. Someone asked Captain Phil Meegut what happened to the rest of his crew, but he just burped and muttered something about indigestion.

Fat man explodes

He was heard to say 'Just one more wafer-thin mint oreo blizzard' and then he exploded

This story is so tragic it might make you cry. Yarpnews is the first to bring you the unfortunate news that Phil Megut has exploded… to death.

Young Phil Megut first hit the headlines last week after he was discovered living alone on a very deserted desert island by a small group of Filipino fishermen. Mr Megut was the only survivor after his ship the SS Fat Guy was wrecked off the coast of India in 2009.

Following his dramatic rescue, Mr Megut returned to the Unites States and celebrated his home coming with a piece of pie.

He then allegedly, carried on celebrating in some of America’s top restaurants, including McDonalds, Wendys, Burger King, Subways, KFC, Krispy Kreme and Diary Queen.

Unfortunately, it seems that Mr Megut didn’t know his own limits and he kept on celebrating until he could celebrate no more.

Finally, last night, as Mr Megut was being escorted from Diary Queen he was heard to mutter, “Just one more wafer-thin mint Oreo blizzard”, and a few seconds later he exploded.
