Crikey: Croc Hunter Steve Irwin Dies

You know, when he was alive, he was just too goofy for words. But now, its not so goofy at all. Steve Irwin, known to millions around the world as The Crocodile Hunter, has died. He was 44.

The crazy Ausie, known for his catchphrase "Crikey!" and doing insane stunts with dangerous wildlife, was stung by a stingray while filming a documentary off of Batt reef, near Port Douglas. He was pronounced dead at the scene. (Link -- via Fark)

Blog Prophyts would like to extend its condolences to Mr. Irwin's family, and to all his fans around the world. Somehow, watching the Discovery Channel just won't be the same anymore without hearing his voice telling us about this wallabe or that extremely poisonous snake. He was most certainly a one-of-a-kind chap, and his contributions to the promotion of both Austrailia and Wildlife Understanding will be sorely missed...
