Now that's a crock


First, may God rest Steve Irwin's soul and be with his family during this incredibly difficult time.

Quotes I've heard in the media today include what a great family man Irwin was.

I don't doubt that, but he was also a sensationalist attention seeker, who did things to provoke dangerous animals. You'd think that a guy who really WAS a great family man would do more to preserve his family circle.

It's a very sad story... and I do respect the work he did to help bring a focus on the animal kingdom.

But you can't say he didn't have it coming.

Gack! What a way to go -- some manta stabs you in the heart when all you wanted to do was get a little kiss....

The fact that an animal killed him doesn't surprise me; however, the fact that it wasn't a croc DOES.

He died doing what he loved most, advocating for animals...

Awww. It's always sad when someone die. I am sorry for his family.

He certainly did a lot of stupid stuff. I figured he would get bit by a snake and die.

Mishka said...

I was sad to hear he had died...he was fun to watch. At least he was doing something he loved when it happened.

You read my mind....Or maybe you read my blog. Same thing.

I just can't believe it wasn't a snake or a croc.

my kids loved to watch the Croc Hunter.

Kindda makes me think about that trip we took and were in the Cayman's and I went on that "StingRay" swim trip.

They somehow failed to mention that...
"Oh....by the way....While you're holding one of these things.....THEY CAN KILL YOU"!!!!

Details, Details!!!

What are the chances anyways? I heard he's only second person to die from a Stingray in 60 years.

Sorry Dave... dildo.

You play with the bull.. you get the horns.

No crying on this end of Nowhereville?!

Really really sad.
I watched him all the time.
God rest his soul.

steve irwin seems to be much more highly thought of overseas than at home. I live an hour's drive from his zoo... its ok... most of my peers were always a bit embarrassed by him... we are honestly not like that here.. I've never said "crikey" in all of my 43 years.
