The moment I saw the headline this morning the question flashed through my mind: Okay, what beastie was he standing next to that finally decided to spare the world of another crocodile hunter? Turns out the little voice in my head was right.

Quite honestly, the guy was a bit annoying. I was hoping we'd get to see him eaten on live TV. "Crikey, Kids! Get a load of the teeth on this cr-AAAAAAAHAAHAHHHHHHH!!! Oh Gods! Get it off!!!!! Get it off!!! Oh Jesus! Oh Jewish God! Help me Jebus!!!!"

On the other hand, he was a good environmentalist; he did a fair amount of good in the world (except for that time he dangled his baby like a crocodile-treat). I'm sure Steve Irwin will be missed.

Um...so if a stingray can kill you, why do they have a whole petting-zoo-tank of them at Seaworld in Orlando?

For the record, I quite liked him. I found him entertaining, occasionally informative, and one hell of a conservationist.

My oldest son adored him, wanted very much to meet him and was absolutely crushed to learn of his death.
