In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Steve Irwin became an international phenomenon with his immensely popular TV show "The Crocodile Hunter," which showcased the wild Australian Outback where he grew up. The show also introduced the world to his signature and much-imitated catchphrase "Crikey," cementing his place in Pop Culture.
Irwin's red hot career was not without its missteps, however. In 2004, he seemingly dangled his baby over a hungry crocodile in front of a large crowd of spectators. Bad press followed, but he shook it off and survived. Then in 2006, there was chance encounter with a pissed-off stingray. That he did not survive.
So listen up, mate: grab yer Fosters, order a bloomin' onion and get ready for one 'ell of a story.
