Stingray Revenge Killings

The stingray that killed Steve Irwin ignored the most important law of the jungle.

Ye may kill for yourselves, and your mates, and your cubs as they need, and ye can;
But kill not for pleasure of killing,
and seven times never kill Man!
Here is why the wolf pack codified that rule:
A number of stingrays have been slaughtered in an apparent wave of revenge killings over the death of conservationist and television personality Steve Irwin.

Ten have been found with their tails cut off near Hervey Bay and Deception Bay in south-east Queensland.

. . .

. . . to hear that people are actually going out and killing stingrays and cutting off their tails is barbaric. It's ridiculous. Steve would really be abhorred by this whole event. It's not something that should be happening.

The real tragedy here: this proves that the IQ of the general population is DANGEROUSLY low. Um. Revenge killings? Revenge against stingrays? What, did they have a worldwide meeting of all the stingrays and decide it would afford stingraydom a tactical advantage in its plot to take over the world if they killed a TV star and conservationist? Do these people actually think animals can commit premeditated murders??

I say we find the people who are doing this and sterilize them. Not out of revenge, but for the good of the human race.

Your ire is easily stirred LF. In any case I'm backing the stingrays. Those fuckers are EVERYWHERE. Now, can we move on to DWTS?

Well Aesop Annie, nothing against stingrays but I am positively swimming with glee, for although I cannot fathom how you have foundered into this fable about Iraq I am pleased.

No Iraqi's stung us or were even associated with the bad rays that did yet that, as the LF points out, the low IQ'ed reprobate and his henchman, while not the general public, non the less attacked any who looked like rays and were helpless.

Annie, you must unconscientiously be as repulsed by the reality of Iraq as you are by the carnage on the GBR.

casca, eh. I just don't like sharing a planet with stupid people. If that makes me irate, so be it. Personally I'd go with "bemusedly cynical," but hey, potato, po-tah-to.

Heh, who does? Better get used to though, or either substance abuse or insanity will be in your future.

"Be abhorred by"? No, no.

He'd abhor the activity; it would not abhor him. It can't, not being an actor.
