2003-01-03 02:11:41 PM other news, Barrister Steve Irwin has filed for a writ of habeas corpus.

Most likely arranging to smuggle it into Romania.

"There was no one else in the lock-up at the time so he was quite comfortable," said Sgt. John Anderson at Derby police station.
I don't know why this made me laugh.

Are they sure it was a crocodile ? It could have been a black garbage bag.

"emerge from the mangroves..."

Mangroves? Like men growing on trees? Sweet!

Bubba: Don't you mean habeas crocus?

Whatever the croc did, I'm sure it was in cold blood.

I got this mental image of a croc walking far because hes pissed off...all the way to that old folks home. The whole way there he was prolly muttering about eating those old people.

I'm surprized ol' Steve wasn't down there posting bail!
2003-01-03 05:11:15 PM  
They can hold him for 24 hours without filing charges.
2003-01-03 05:11:49 PM

*ducks and hides*

Ahh life must be so much simpler there.

Great. That's all we need, more people buying into the stereotypical Australia (outback, kangaroos in our streets,e tc.) and steretypical Australians (Erwin, Dundee).

Erwin's a wanker. We can't stand him here either, he only became famous in the U.S, don't blame us, you made him a star.
2003-01-03 10:16:58 PM  
i wonder if they'll link him to Al Qeada...

4 foot crocodile is nothing, they have tourist cruises up north, where big 8 footers are trained to jump out of the water for food.
