Crikey! That lovable idiot who defies death was last night taken to Brisbane General Hospital after one of his crocodiles took ate Steve Irwin's pinky finger.
The staff from Australia Zoo was not available for comment but the Nick McCar, Steve's official right hand man said "Steve is in a stable condition. He finding it hard to come to grips with the fact that he'll never have his right hand the same again. We really can't get a word out of him. All he keeps saying is "Crikey!"
Nick McCar Said that Steve heard the cry for food at 3am this morning from Graham one of Steves favourite crocs. Steve went out to take a plate of meat to Graham but he had 'other meat' in mind by taking Steves pinky finger on his right hand"
Aparently, Steves sense of humour is still in tact. Nick McCar says that "Steve is running a competition for a regular Joe to win some fantastic prizes, including a staring role in the next Croc Hunter movie. All you have to do is to find Steve's pinky finger in grahams mouth". Other competitions include race the croc across its home, the world famous "Smell my Breath" event which Steve is well known for around the world.
The accident puts the production of Steves latest movie on hold. "Croc Hunter 2 - Legend in my lunchbox" is due for international release in March. In the movie, Steve goes looking for the notorious Three Toed Sloth but somehow ends up on the set of American Idol where he takes over Simon Cowells job while Simon Cowell decides to take over Dr Phil's job because Dr Phil finally ties the not with Oprah.
Sources also tell us that Steve is about to launch a new merchandise range. Some items includes a deodrant called "Whatacroc" that smells like a crocodile and Steve himself. Other items include Underpants with steves head on the front, and a phone that says "Crikey ya phone's ringing, Ya better pick it up" as the ringtone.
Steve is expected to be discharged from hospital later on this week.
