Steve Irwin Has A Michael Jackson “Balcony Moment”

It seems that the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, took his kid out with him to feed a croc. Here are the details…

“Crocodile hunter Steve Irwin has defended his decision to hold his baby son while feeding a crocodile, saying it was important to teach kids about danger.

Friday’s incident at Mr Irwin’s Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast made headlines internationally and prompted comparisons with Michael Jackson’s notorious dangling of his baby over a balcony.

Mr Irwin also earned a reprimand from Queensland’s Department of Family Services.”

Now while I haven’t seen the show yet, it probably went about like this…

Staff Member: I don’t know if it’s a good idea to take your baby out to feed that croc…

Steve Irwin: Nonsense, mate. You’re always such a worrywart! Remember that time you told me not to take a flying leap into that rattlesnake nest?

Staff Member: Steve, you were bitten 8 times. If we didn’t have the antidote on hand, you would have died right there!

Steve Irwin: See? It worked out fine! Roll cameras, I’m off…

Staff Member: Wait, wait…Steve…

Steve Irwin: (takes the baby out to feed the croc, filming starts) “Crikey mate! These crocs have a great sense of smell and this little sheila here knows this is my baby. That’s why she’d like nothing better than to snatch this sweet, succulent, baby out of my arms and eat him like an hors d’oeuvres to make up for all the times I’ve taunted her on camera. Woah, she almost took a nip out of my baby that time! Boy, I would have looked pretty silly if that had happened, huh mate?

Ok, now let’s try something a little different…I’m going to dangle this baby right over the croc’s mouth. She’s not going for him yet! Let’s see what happens when I rub the baby across this angry crocodile’s nose…ohhhh wow! She came this close to biting him right in half…that was scary! She’s thrashing left and right, she’s really kill crazy now! Boy, these crocs sure are beautiful when they’re trying to rip a baby out of your arms and eat it alive in front of you!

(Hops out of the croc pen) Well, that was a real adventure wasn’t it? Make sure to come back next week when I place my baby inbetween an enraged mother hippo and her baby! They really hate that, more than anything! See you next week everybody!

Steve, buddy, here’s a little friendly advice…keep your baby out of the croc pens. I’m just trying to help you out here…
