Steve Irwin to the rescue!

Richard Venning, regional director of Africa and Asia Venture, the company that organised the trip, said: "The group was hot and sweaty after pitching their tents and some of them wanted to go for a swim.

why doesn't that line ever work for me?

"Kenyan police are investigating..." wow, now thats reassuring
2002-03-11 09:35:57 PM  
I wonder what happened to him...
2002-03-11 09:36:54 PM  
'Gap Year' The british are so... weird
2002-03-11 09:37:56 PM  
Lemme be the first to say it: Crikey!
2002-03-11 09:38:27 PM  
why didn't she just wrassle it? That's how we handle these sorts of things in the USA
2002-03-11 09:40:31 PM  
Well, bi-crocky!
2002-03-11 09:40:42 PM  
Just don't blame the 'gators, okay?
All God's critters gotta eat.

for gross negligence

TheLude- I think a gap year student is someone who takes a year off between highschool and attending college.
2002-03-11 09:42:18 PM  
Lots of "dumbass" tags today, I see.
2002-03-11 09:43:16 PM  
Stugar - you are correct. Except it's secondary school and university. So there.
2002-03-11 09:43:24 PM  
The croc is quoted as saying: "I don't know about this British food. Too bland for my tastes. I hope an Indian goes swimming here next..."
2002-03-11 09:43:43 PM  
The latest news is that they found her body but it was missing the right arm. But the good news is that she was left handed.

Get me a crocodile sandwich and make it snappy.
2002-03-11 09:44:43 PM  
Well, MrEricSir, they need to update the hippocractic oath stating doctors can do away with the stupid as part of their service to mankind....
2002-03-11 09:44:46 PM  
Patc- My mistake.:)
2002-03-11 09:44:55 PM  
the tagline takes all the fun out of the story.
2002-03-11 09:45:17 PM  
"She had intended that the trip to Kenya would widen her knowledge of environmental issues..."

I suppose, for a very brief moment at least, it certainly did.
2002-03-11 09:46:21 PM  
I believe there is a spot under the jaw that will invoke a hypnotic state in a croc or gater if it has pressure applied to it. Saw it on discovery, so it must be true!

To the rescue!!!
2002-03-11 09:46:57 PM  
'Dumbass' for some reason implies male to me... what would the female version be... 'Dumbassess'?
2002-03-11 09:47:28 PM  
"Hey Ira, the kid's here with the broad. They're taking her out to the boat. I got a real bad feeling about this one Ira, real bad."

Ira: "Will you look at those snappers Ralph!"

Tourist: "Are there any crocodiles in this river?"
Guide: "No, there are no crocodiles - "
(Tourist dives into river)
Guide: " - because the piranha eat them all."
2002-03-11 09:48:57 PM  
Patc actually female would be fineass, greatass, or magnificentass.. of course, there are the not-so-fineass' as well
2002-03-11 09:50:06 PM  
I think the poor crocodile was confused. It was trying to eat out the pretty, naked girl, rather than eat her.
2002-03-11 09:53:02 PM  
Freak - perhaps it did... but its technique was rubbish, so when she said 'Shall I give you a hand'... it all went a bit wrong

Ooh bad taste in my mouth suddenly

A Kenyan police spokesman said: "She was seen by her friends being dragged under the water. There are crocodiles in the lake. We have not recovered her body."

This paragraph is missing a key fourth sentence, which would begin with the word 'Therefore'.

"Now, what ahm gonna do is jam mah thumb up its butt!"
2002-03-11 09:59:46 PM

2002-03-11 10:00:41 PM

2002-03-11 10:00:54 PM  
ERIC SIR- There are only 2 dumbass tags today, whatchu talking about?
2002-03-11 10:02:40 PM

2002-03-11 10:05:13 PM  
How old was the crocodile at the Gap? What the hell?
2002-03-11 10:05:54 PM  
Gap means they're smarter than the rest of the students or something so her smarrts got her dead. HUZZAH!
2002-03-11 10:06:56 PM  
Already 40 posts and nobody mentioned: The Darwin Awards???????

Wow! What a weird night...
2002-03-11 10:15:46 PM  
British students...It's what's for dinner.
2002-03-11 10:19:27 PM  
tat's what I thought - spend a yuear at the Gap? I can't go in there for more than five minutes.

incidentally, a female dumbass is a dumbassette.
2002-03-11 10:20:57 PM  
gap - gay and proud. hahah
2002-03-11 10:22:10 PM  
"...speaking from the families $2,000,000 house..."
she sounds like a I'll-save-the-world-because-I-have-a-trust-fund biatch.

i guess they'll try to kill the gator. i'm glad that her death will likely result in the destruction of the very wildlife she was so intent on saving. it's called irony folks...and/or entertainment.
2002-03-11 10:24:56 PM  
Hmmmm, I wonder if crocodile tail is as tasty as 'gator tail...
2002-03-11 10:35:25 PM  
In Australia, it is common for a student to have a year off between high school and college. My cousin has just started college (aka "Uni") and now I am ahead of her. So there.
2002-03-11 10:35:49 PM  
Fry_Sauce, 2,000,000 pounds (to retarded to make pound symbol) is a little more than $2,800,000.
