Crikey

If the world is full of good guys and bad, Steve Irwin was one of the good guys.

Who here thought it would be a crocodile that eventually got him?

And how many other bloggers in the world are writing exactly this same posting?

I feel very sad that he died. He was such a huge, original personality. On the cute side, too. Can't leave that out. Odd it was a stingray.

So sad.

Can't say he wasn't remembered today though.

The true definition of irony.

Regardless of the jokes people are bound to make, he was a truly great person and one of the few celebrities that could shed light on the problems facing preservation without tagging on some kind of politcal agenda.

At least he died doing what he loved - how lame would it have been if he had expired from choking on a pretzel or something.

I kinda figured he'd either live to be a geezer(like Marlon Perkins) or die by some random stupid thing, like choking on a pretzel.

Still, ironic that he got killed by an animal that while toxic, isn't generally fatal. If it hadn't pierced his heart, he'd most likely be grinning like a fool and talking about the "little nippa" that stung him.

It's a loss.

This is about the 80th post I've seen on this.

Wasn't a fan and, while I feel bad for his family, I won't miss him. Just the way it works. Wasn't part of my cultural intake because I found him annoying as hell.

That was the point, not to point out that crocodile man died but that every blogger in the world would be posting the same "he was great" comments.
