I always figured he’d end up in a croc’s belly

September 4th, 2006

Crikey, this is a bit of a shock. Steve Irwin, the “Crocodile Hunter”, always seemed to me like a reckless ham, and yet I liked him in spite of all his antics. We learned this morning (although at first we thought it was a joke) that he died when a Stingray attacked him and stabbed its barbed tail into his heart. How does a guy so adept at dodging crocodile snaps and snake strikes get done in by a mere stingray? I guess that if you live on the edge then eventually you fall over it. Wendy, who seems to watch nothing but Animal Planet, has probably seen every show he’s ever appeared in. I can’t exactly say I will miss him… but Wendy probably will.
