Crikey

More things I need to worry about:

1. Stingray heart piercings

Of course Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray. Pretty much nobody in the history of time has ever been stabbed in the heart by a stingray so of course he was. I mean honestly what other way would he go? Cancer? Hell no. Steve Irwin would've laughed at cancer. Steve Irwin would've jumped on cancer's back and wrestled it to the ground then stuck his head inside its massive razor-sharp-teeth-lined mouth and stomped on its balls until it just gave up and whimpered away into remission. It had to be by a freak animal attack. It simply had to be.

Honestly I'm really saddened by this news. I thought he was terrific. His energy was absolutely infectious, and he was truly a joy to watch. Really he was just a lovable, insane, nerdy badass.

RIP Crocodile Hunter.

P.S. Seriously though-this picture? Not normal.

I'm always moderately amused by the deaths of people who routinely do dangerous things. Dale Earnhart, etc.

Yeah, I was a bit sad too. As a dude doing way dangerous things all the time, you kind of expected him to be killed, but at the same time you also expected him to live as long as Keith Richards while everyone else who didn't do anything dangerous ever were killed by runaway pianos and $1 christmas lights.

I live in Queensland where his zoo is, there is going to be a state funeral but I hope more than anything his pall bearers are rampaging oxen or something.

Random randoms:
+ I never even heard of Steve until I saw him on South Park.

+ There were bad jokes floating around the internet about his death before his wife even found out.
