  Music:"You're sick, Cantrick! Sick, sick, SICK!"

Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo is now serving Sting Ray...
It's Expensive, but Steve reckons "It's to die for!"

Guess who's singing at Steve Irwin's funeral?
STING, RAY Charles, and BARBara Striesand!

Why did they recall Steve Irwin's line of sunblock?
It didn't protect against deadly rays.

What network will be hosting his re-runs?

Did you hear that Steve Irwin died like he lived?
With animals in his heart.

What did Steve Irwin say when he pulled the stingray barb from his chest?

How many respected biologists have been killed by stingrays?

What's the difference between the Croc Hunter and Princess Di?
He brought his own camera crew.

But, seriously.

I haven't laughed that hard at jokes in a long time.

The stingray pic made me sniffle a little.

Sappy, me? Nah.

Maybe it's just me, but I never particularly liked the Croc Hunter. Thought he was highly annoying. Of course, I didn't want him to get killed either. Just wanted him to stop molesting the animals.

I usually found him annoying too, but when that happened I just changed the channel. What I admire him for is his commitment to wildlife and all the conservation he funded. If he had to act like an annoying stereotype on TV, okay, fine. I never had to watch him if I didn't want to.

A couple years ago I was taking a folklore class--not creation-myth folklore, but urban legends/bumperstickers/the sorts of things everyone knows/tells but never thinks about. On the day Kennedy's plane crashed into the ocean, we were told to take note of how many internet forwards (ideally containing bad jokes about the death) we got in the next 24 hours. Everyone in the class had had at least one by the next morning...

"I remember when the Kennedys used to kill their women one at a time!"

I dunno, man. Every time I spun past him on cable, he was wrestling some otherwise-happy-to-be-left-alone bit of wildlife.

Frankly I was never a fan... alwasy thought he was kind of a dick. :)
