This week Steve Irwin, a.k.a. The Crocodile Hunter, was killed in a freak accident while shooting a new TV show.
I knew it would come to this, that some critter would get him sooner or later, but I had hoped it would be a long time from now.
On behalf of all those who love wildlive and adventure, I offer my condolences to the Irwin family and his legion of loyal fans; he went out doing what he loved.

I was watching a panel show on English telly shortly after this and the topic that the contestants had to come up with was "Famous Last Words"

One of the guys stepped up and said in an Australian accent " And this is how the Stingray experiences foreplay......urrrghhhh Crikey!" Laughing

Yeah in bad taste ..........but I thought it was hilarious!! Laughing

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

I never cease to be amazed how qucikly folks deal with grief by using humor. I remember when Princess Diana died, it wasn't two hours before someone told me a joke about it.

I do think people deal with grief very differently but seriously can we as viewers of these famous people truly grieve them we definitely don't mou
for them in the same way as we would a family member or loved one in our own lives.......

Incidently was this the joke you heard Laughing


What was the last thing Diana & Dodi had to drink?

4 Harvey Wallbangers, 2 Slammers, followed by 7 chasers and a Pina Colida


And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

Yeah sure it's tacky, tasteless and most certainly not to be told to the grieving family members...but it's how the rest of us cope when we are powerless to prevent a tragedy.
This one I've been hearing ever since the day the space shuttle Challenger exploded in mid-flight:
Why did NASA switch to Sprite?
Because they couldn't get Seven-Up.

Still, I'll bet "Crikey!" was Irwin's last word.

Oh, so it's turning into that kind of a thread. Perhaps there should
be an "off-color" forum, as well as an "off topic" forum, huh?

Sunshine's NASA joke reminds me of some of the Hale Bopp/Heaven's
Gate jokes that got sent around back in 1997....like the one about the fax
sent to the Heaven's Gate fax machine advising personnel that heavy
tail winds from the comment were delaying pickup of the 39 passengers
until 2024, so they should NOT eat the pudding.

Sometimes, you have to laugh, otherwise you'd cry.

Truer words were never spoken. I'm sure irwin's family has humorous stories they are telling to keep their spirits up

Will someone shut that man up
NEVER!

As the angry stand-up philosopher Lewis Black put it, "He taught a crocodile to associate babies with chicken," so maybe this was karma, I don't know.
I do know Irwin lived a life of adventure, out there with the real wildlife and for that, I envy him---don't cue the crying violin just yet, Bugger. I'm not quite that far gone just yet.
