Emails I May Never Send #10

Dear Steve Irwin,

Never smile at a crocodile.

And for goodness' sake, mind that stingray.

Should have used sunscreen to keep out of the rays

Is now a good time to reveal that along with my Joey Ramone action figure, I also have owned (it may still be in my posession, somewhere) a Steve Irwin action figure? It was underwater Steve. Diving mask and everything. Got it at K-Mart. There was also one that talked. It was grouse and so was he. My favourite recollection of his tv appearances :

"Holy moley, wow! That's one of the world's most deadliest snakes hangin' in that tree - let's poke it with a stick!".

Miracle he survived as long as he did really really.

Guess the big bloke upstairs was calling : "Steve, stop muckin' around in the pool and come inside, yeh tea's ready".

I would never call myself a huge fan of Steve Irwin but I am a huge fan of what he was trying to achieve. When he wasn’t busy defending his actions for disturbing Antarctic wildlife in 2004, he was recognised as Queenslander of the Year and Tourism Export of the year, as well as nominated for Australian of the Year. Also to his credit, however, he did invest much of that money into buying “large tracts of land” in Australia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the USA with the aim of conserving the natural habitats of many endangered animals. He also founded the charity Wildlife Warriors World Wide, attracting praise for being a “natural historian.”
This I only learnt this since his death and it has somewhat made me appreciate the mad man even more.

See ya Steve!
I only hope that others continue the efforts you started, into making this world a better place for our children and so on!
