I got about 3 joke messages on my phone a few hours after the news broke.

A bit to soon in opinion, lets give him and his family a bit of respect in these early days.......

Take that back!

No one deserves or "had something coming" everyone deserves to live. He was no evil man. He was a kind man, who had a strong passion for animals.

Think what you like, but it's still too soon to speak bad about the guy.

Geez, are you kidding? He loved those animals! You should've seen the vid of when a croc died at his zoo, he was crying over it like a child!

scion05
08-09-06, 19:06
well... i got bored of watching... lol
although i liked it when i was about 8 lol,
we all sit in the living room going...
" omg its gonna get im... YES " *jumps away from croc*

:vlol:

Err..Steve cares for the animals.
Not neglects them.
That's why he made a whole zoo.
I've actually been there and seen his wife.

scion05
08-09-06, 19:11
he didnt make the zoo... he bought it..

Lara's Boy

Whatever that financial circumstance, he cared for the crocs. His death was tragic, and I don't think it should EVER be made fun of, especially now.

Mad Tony
08-09-06, 19:13

Ok whatever.
But he ran it.
And he ran it well.
I've been there.
The animals were very well looked after.

Put it this way : What if Madonna was stabbed while singing?

Would you be laughing about it later?

Assassino
08-09-06, 19:14
He inherited the zoo from his father.
It's a family business.

It doesn't matter if people liked him as much as you do Madonna (I don't think that's even possible, lol), the fact is that he was a respectable, well known person who died tragically. How could people make fun of that?

scion05

Omg! :mad: I didn't like this joke at all! Irwin, or nobody else - who's dead in fact - deserves that!

CuteKittenlol
08-09-06, 19:45
well it was bound to happen....
Even so.
I agree 100% with Lavinder, no one deserves to 'have it coming' and everbody deserves to live.

EDIT - Well said BoyTRaider

Even though he's doing a dangerous job.
It's not right to say "he had it coming"
He was a good man. :(

yeah, he may have been a total idiot getting so close to all those deadly animals but he wasnt harming them in any way, there was no need to say 'he had it coming'.

Mad Tony
08-09-06, 19:52

Not nessescearily (sp?)
He knows animals well.
He wasn't a crazy idiot who didn't know what he was doing.

I dislike how people always make jokes like this when someone famous dies. It's just not very tasteful in my opinion.

Yeah he was well experienced, I always thought he was crazy for going so close to them like that XD
But he knew what he was doing.

@ reggie - Its not very tasteful imo either.

I didn't find that funny at all. He died last week. It doesn't even matter, a joke like this about anyone who has died isn't funny, to me at least.

i was so shocked when i heard he died. some kids in my history class said that they thought if an animal killed him it would be a croc. i didn't find it funny at all.

Jacob x5
08-09-06, 21:18
Yes scion, of course. He spends all this time with crocodiles, he was bound to get killed by a stingray eventually.

well he had it coming....

My mom died falling from a balcony due to a loose banister... did she have it coming, too? Just shouldn't have been up there...?

It was a tragedy. A freak accident. And for you to even say something like that... is insensitive and rude. Unnervingly so. Perhaps you might respect he and the rest of us and keep your mouth shut. :mad:

Back to the point, I think the "joke" is a) very hard to understand and b)insensitive. Really isn't the time.

Sorry for your Loss Jacob... I think Scion was just basically saying when you work with danger so much like he did, there's always that risk factor... 'He had it coming' is definatley the wrong phrase to use, But even though it was shocking news.. I'm sure a lot of people could see it coming, Perhaps even Steve himself.... But that risk came with the job he loved.

Geck-o-Lizard
14-09-06, 07:33
I laughed at it. Call me sick if you like. It was a great pity for his family but I'm not mourning the loss of a man I'd only ever vaguely heard of before his death.

scoopy_loopy
14-09-06, 09:19
nah too soon.

And scion, take that back!


and in relation to that video, even if steve hadnt died it wouldnt have been funny, its just stupid.

and that is the worst australian accent ive ever heard...

Indeed... Jokes this soon... are not tasteful... At least i don't think so



Come on people, Please back off from Scion... He gave his opinion on it... don't attack him for it.

dont tell me what ever the **** i can and cant say you still little ****!
yeah, what happened to your mum really is terrible, but no, she didnt have it coming, it was an accident and her death is awful, but steve irwin, a guy who mauled animals all the time, did have it coming, especially as half the animals were VERY dangerous. It was an accident waiting to happen PERIOD.

I don't think it was an accident waiting to happen.
Steve Iriwn cared for these animals.
And he certainy didn't "maul" animals all the time. :mad:

scion05

Perhaps what scion is trying to say is that working in a dangerous environment, the risk of injury is that much higher. I don't think he/she was implying that Steve Irvin deserved being killed. Or at least, I hope not.

scion05
15-09-06, 15:36

oh and just shut it stefan and scoopy :) im entitled to my own opinion :wve:

Melonie Tomb Raider
15-09-06, 16:19
I actually agree with you scion; although, I think you could have stated it a little more... gently perhaps.

Steve Irwin didn't deserve to die, but the fact is, he put himself in extremely dangerous situations regularly. Living a life like that, you will die early. In all reality, he's quite fortunate that he made it this long.

I'm very sad about his death though. :( He definitely did not deserve it.
