I just knew that eventually I would see the headline Steve Irwin killed in freak accident. "Stingray barb to the heart" ranked 1024 in my own personal list of ways I figured the Crocodile Hunter could take the big dirt nap.
Other ways I figured he could eventually meet his maker included:
#6 Face bitten off while aggravating a grumpy koala.
#72 Car blown off the road while chasing spinning tazmanian devil.
#156 Head stuffed in a kangaroo's pouch by one of Zartan's Dreadnoks.
#765 Attacked by these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane.
Freak though he was, the Croc Hunter did quite a bit for Australia's eco-tourism and conservation of its wildlife. His antics were entertaining and he will be missed.
