Sad News for the Night: R.I.P. Croc Hunter
by docsmartypants

Well damn, that’s cast rather a gloom over the evening. I just got home from a lovely evening out to find that Steve “Crocodile Hunter” Irwin is dead. I mean, on the one hand you think, Jesus, it’s amazing it didn’t happen sooner. But he always got away with the dangerous stuff so you just sort of figured he’d keep on surviving. Anyway, I always had a soft spot for the guy, even if he was a little crazy. And I feel really sad for his wife and kids.

And of course I had an obscene amount of caffeine this evening so there’ll be no going to bed anytime soon. I’m just left here to reflect on this tragic bit of news.

    it is indeed sad. In his way, he is kind of the Bob Ross of naturalists: terribly amusing, charismatic and loveable. Just because Bob & Steve were on diametric opposite ends of the Hyperactivity spectrum doesn’t mean they didn’t have a similar screen presence.
