Two rather iconic Australians, in my mind, and both dying in circumstances related to their vocations. They'll be missed by everyone around the world. It's a good time for reflection upon our own lives, and surely it must remind everyone that we shouldn't waste what time we have.
The exception is Germaine Greer and her wild-eyed, wild-armpitted followers.
Ms Greer said Mr Irwin had not treated animals with the respect they deserved.
"He would tell you how dangerous they were and he would proceed to intrude on their space and humiliate really - treat them with massive insensitivity," she said.That was from A Current Affair, so we can't say how reliable it is, but whatever.
Sounds rather like Germaine Greer in regards to men, come to think of it. Read her Enough Rope interview.
Thus, if Germaine Greer is ever killed by a 'partner' (which would apparently likely be a young boy, hairless and feminine), I think it only appropriate that we respond by saying that
'the hairless boys world got their revenge'. It'll be, like, poetic justice.
In other news, A Current Affair is hate-mongering again, this time against Muslim taxi-drivers.
Is that really needed?
