That hyperactive fella (forget his name) marketed himself for an AMERICAN audience!!!
We'd never heard of him while Amricans were wetting themselves over him.
However, he did REALLY get loved by lots of Oz kids after he became big in the states, and their little hearts were broken by that stingray.
Just recalled his name...Steve Irwin.
One of my colleagues had a kid who adored him, and who wrote a letter, after his death, to the crocodiles in his care.
It said how sorry he was at their loss, and he knew they would be taken care of by Bindi and the mum, but he knew they would never be loved with the passion Steve had for them.
I won't look at the rest until I get home from work, but I LOVE that Oz invasion story.
It really does capture the chip on our shoulder hilariously. perfect!!!
I know it sounds kind of weird, but it was heart-wrenching to read.
