I've played with stingrays. They're docile and affectionate. On CNN, they're bending over backwards to explain this, and what a "rare" thing it is that an encounter with a stingray is fatal. I think it's safe to say that Steve Irwin is the only person ever killed by a stingray. There's probably more people out there who have met their ends at the hands of bunnies than stingrays.
I always found him unwatchable. One of the most annoying people ever to grace the television screen.
Maybe that explains it.
The gentle, playful stingray had had enough. "Christ Man! Will you please just shut up?"
