I've just woken up to the eulogising of a chirpy 8-year old on the radio.
Australian croc-botherer Steve Irwin died a couple of weeks ago after swimming over to one of Earth's less angry creatures and getting killed anyway. During today's memorial service his daughter couldn't have sounded less bothered. In fact, she rather seemed to be enjoying herself.
I suspect we haven't heard the last of her. Keep watching 'Neighbours'. If you must.
What's truly remarkably though, is the reaction of some of Steve's fans to his death. Now I love this, it's totally off the Ironic Scale. Steve was underwater with a stingray. Singray attacks on humans are incredibly rare, and they're not naturally agressive, they only sting in defence. Even the venom is rarely lethal. Nonetheless, this stingray saw Irwin floating above and JAB, barb through the heart.
So some of these fans have been killing Stingrays in revenge attacks... Stingrays - incapable of free thought - freak accident - essentially a fish - being singled out for murder.
And the worst part? The guilty stingray is probably still out there, blissfully unaware and looking really fucking ugly.
There really is no justice.
