First a moment of silence for the Crocodile Hunter. Steve Irwin


(sniff) (sniff)

Steve Irwin was stabbed through the heart yesterday by a stingray tail and died. All efforts to resuscitate him failed. I remember watching Steve on Animal Planet with Nick Shusas and the boys in University. Those were good times. Who wants to watch reality shows when a khaki-clad, Crikey! crying Aussie is constantly a nips rip away from the deep hibernation in the sky. Steve, you reinforced a deeply ingrained fear I had of reptiles and now I might have to apply that same paranoia to stingrays.

Jokes aside, you were amazing. Nobody else could have done what you accomplished and you rose out from behind the shadow of that other crocodile mocking Australian- Crocodile Dundee (plus your movie was a lot better than Dundee 2).
