Steve Irwin Dies


In an appropriately bizarre animal related death, Steve Irwin, beloved Australian wildlife specialist and entertainer leaves the rest of us wondering who's going to wrestle all those alligators for us? Who's going to hunt crocodiles now and say things in his deliciously strong accent like, "Isn't she a beaut? She could reelly tayk a bayt outta ya!"

A sting ray, in an unlikely turn of events, pierced Irwin through the heart with its ten inch barbed tail during the filming of a TV show on the Great Barrier Reef, killing the film personality instantly. He was dead before the film crew pulled him from the water. He leaves behind a wife, two children, and millions of loyal fans. Myself included.

He lived life with passion. Thank you Steve.

I know he lived his life so as to be always almost in the mouth of death itself, but I kinda wanted him to live to a ripe old age and die in bed.

Bet his wife did, too.

I'll miss him. I can't believe he didn't get bit by something venemous long ago.

It's as if the god of venemous creatures finally had to go to extremes because he'd been frustrated in all his efforts for so long.
