An April Fool

Ooooh boy. For the April Fool (and quite possibly as Everyday Fool), I nominate Steve whatshisface, "The Crocodile Hunter". This guy must have a death wish or something, I swear. I feel sorry for this guy's cameraman. But he is definately, with out question, one of the biggest (and most televised) FOOLS I have ever seen. Not only does he have to taunt and pick up the various snakes, but for the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake he has to get really close to the snake's head and Thank the snake!! I'm not sure if he missed the sanity boat entirely or he just completely missed the line when they were doling out common sense and pain avoidance.
Awwww...the little marsupials are so cute! At least there haven't been that many icky "I have a death wish" scenes in this one. Awwwww...a fox kit! Rabbits and mice are icky because they're mean and endanger the other ones by being all plague-y and things. What is with his obsession with reptiles?!? "A very dangerous snake..." so what's his idea? Why, let's taunt the toxic brown snake, why not? Oh, guess not. Just corner the poor thing and then talk about it. Damn goats. They just *had* to eat everything, didn't they? Bah, enough about this Animal Planet Crocodile Hunter stuff. Time to post this and call it updated. And this is the second one this evening too.
Rube Goldberg (adj. ROOB-GOHLD-berg)
: accomplishing by complex means what seemingly could be done simply; also : characterized by such complex means
Reuben Lucius Goldberg was a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist who satirized the technology of modern times. He was best known for his cartoons of complicated, ramshackle contraptions that performed simple tasks in ludicrously complex ways. His cartoon character Professor Lucifer Gorgonzola Butts, for example, invented an automatic stamp licker. The contraption involved a robot that would dump a can of ants onto upturned stamps and a starving anteater that would then lick up the ants, moistening the stamps. By the time Goldberg died in 1970, his name had become associated with unnecessarily complicated contraptions and procedures.
