Book Ends

The other day a scenario popped into my head:
- Being stranded for the rest of your life on a desert island.
- The only other thing on the island is a washed up crate containing a lifetime supply of strawberry flavored edible underwear.

Did any of you read the Stephen King story about the surgeon who was stranded on a desert island with nothing but his emergency medical kit and a huge smuggler's load of heroin? He ends up breaking his leg badly while attempting to chase a seagull across a pile of rocks. His foot ends up going bad and he is forced to dope himself up and amputate it. Once he has done this he realized that 'waste not want not!' and he eats his foot. Then in time, desperately hungry, he repeats the process and amputates his other foot and eats it, etc. Awesome story.
