By now you’ve heard that “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin was stabbed through the heart by a stingray.
Can you stand it?
When I saw the headline Steve ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Irwin Dies appear in my Yahoo! news alert, I said to myself, “let it be eaten by crocodiles, please let it be eaten by crocodiles” but no… it’s even better! Stabbed through the heart by a fucking stingray!
I feel bad for his wife and for his kids, especially his youngest, who is only two and will never know his father. But when he’s swapping stories in the Dead Dad Club, it’s going to be hard to top “stabbed through the heart by a stingray.”
Which, by the way, is my new default answer for when things get shitty. “Well, at least I didn’t get stabbed through the heart by a stingray.”
