RIP, Steve Irwin


RIP, Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. A stingray fucking stabbed him in the heart while he was filming in the Great Barrier Reef today. That's a pretty badass way to die, and also, y'know, the stuff of nightmares.

I really enjoyed the Crocodile Hunter's work throughout the years and I'm very sad to think the world has lost this crazy bastard. Is it wrong that I'm sort of disappointed that he didn't go out by way of crocodile? It just seems so wrong that a freakin' stingray was the one to do it. He deserved better. Death by croc.

I agree with MJ. Steve Irwin being killed by a stringray is like me being killed by a chihuahua.

In proportionate to his badass-ery vs. my badass-ery, you see. Given that I am not very badass (well in terms of fucking with large predators), a chihuahua death would be appropriate. A stingray is pretty cool and all - to a normal human - but Steve should have been torn to death by velociraptors or something.

Fuck you, my analogy rules. I'm also calling the prediction that Steve Irwin will totally replace Chuck Norris in the 'badass internet dude' joke category before the year is out.
