'Deadliest Catch' captain Phil Harris comes out of coma cursing

Jake and Josh Harris took it as a good sign that their father, who suffered a stroke Friday (Jan. 29), was his usual foul-mouthed self at the Alaska hospital where he's recovering.

"Today, dad showed some good signs of improvement, squeezing our hands and even summoning his trademark Captain's bluntness by telling the doctors and nurses, 'Don't f**k up,'" the sons said in a statement released by the Discovery Channel.

Earlier, TMZ had reported that Phil Harris, who captains the Cornelia Marie, had undergone surgery for the stroke and was put into a medically induced coma to preserve brain function. It appears that he's now rejoined the conscious world, hopefully for the better.
