Steve Irwin – Asshat Of The Week

I’ve always rooted for the crocs to take a big chunk out of Steve Irwin due to his annoying antics, but this time he has really gone too far. When it’s just him in the path of angry animals that’s one thing, but when you use a one month old baby as a prop in a crocodile show you should be given a forcible vasectomy to ensure you don’t further procreate. Maybe we’ll all get lucky and a croc will do the snip work on him…

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) – Crocodile hunter Steve Irwin took his month-old son to his first croc feeding on Friday, offering the reptile a chicken with one hand and holding the baby in the other. With a capacity crowd looking on, Irwin dangled a dead chicken before the 13-foot crocodile named Murray, which snapped up the offering. Irwin’s tiny son Bob looked on from his other arm.

“He’s one-month-old, so it’s about time Bob got out there and did his first croc demo,” the Australian celebrity told the crowd at his Australian Zoo. Irwin’s wife Terri, who gave birth to her second child on Dec. 1, also attended the show, billed as Bob’s croc feeding debut.

Somewhere Michael Jackson is secretly smiling…

Update (September 4, 2006) – Steve Irwin dies as the result of sting ray barb fatally embedding in his chest. More details here.
