"Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin done in by something you can pet at aquariums

Crikey! Well, sad as it is, I guess it was only a matter of time. Still, you'd think it would be by something a little more...well...ominous.

I don't know...a barb through the chest sounds pretty nasty.

Also, yeah...that's like people being surprised when Dr. Atkins died of a heart attack.

Yeah, but you think he'd be done in by, say, a charging rhinoceros or at least some sort of uber-crocodile. Not a stingray.

But I don't think it's as "bizarre" as some media outlets are reporting it. For Steve Irwin, I think "bizarre" would be an allergic reaction to a bee sting or a severe static electric discharge while sitting at his PC in a cubicle.

And I loved it when people were shocked that Dr. Atkins died of a heart attack. You know, like the Atkins diet promised immortality or something. Now if his arteries had exploded at the age of 39...

By the way, this apparently happened while filming a documentary. How soon before the footage is leaked on Youtube? Who else is salivating to see it? (be honest, you know you'll be one of the millions of people hammering the website)
