there's something about ..... stingray

Just heard the news that the world-renowned Australian "crocodile hunter" and television environmentalist Steve Irwin has been killed by a stingray on the famed Great Barrier Reef.

I thought this was a news big enough to call coolcat about this tragic accident.

Coolcat: Stingray can sting people one meh?

Now we know why the name. And not only that, it's deadly.

While I'm sad that someone so famous died while on the job on educating the world, I can't help thinking that he got killed by a famous hawker dish in Singapore.

A hawker dish we so take it for granted. Often complaining that the meat not enuff, chilli not out enuff and hawker try to bluff us on the price etc etc. But we never think about the danger that fishermen go thru in order to make that dollar.

I think it's a matter of time the price of stingray goes up. They now have a case to highlight the dangers involved.
