Steve Irwin - the Crocodile Hunter

5 Sep 2006

I was watching tv in a hotel room in Stoke-on Trent in about 1997 - it was in the wee small hours. There was this Australian clown on the tv saying things like 'crikey - he's big' and wrestling a crocodile. I thought it was a comedy sketch, but it didn't end after the nominal 2 minutes.

I realised this guy was serious, and that I was watching foreign cable tv. How come as an Australian I had never heard of him? What's more, why was he acting like such a tool? He was internationally famous and practically unknown in his own country. Such is the fate of many an Australian celebrity. We hate them until you love them.

Why it came as a suprise that he was killed by a wild animal is anybody's guess.

RIP Steve Irwin. Your family will miss you terribly.


Of course the Discovery Channel have the whole thing on video.

I wonder how long it will take for the power of the greenback to win over the Discovery Channel's respect for the family or human decency?
