Australia has made many important contributions to the world. They gave us Muriel’s Wedding.
They gave us the koala bear.
They gave us greatest actor of her generation, Cate Blanchett.
They often use the term “mate,” which is great.
All of these are very important, but the most important thing that the continent down under gave us was Steve Irwin. The crocodile hunter not only changed the way we feel about crocodiles, he also did so with the type of enthusiasm that made us want to go on our very own crazy excursions.
G’morning, friends. I want to talk to you about somebody who inspired and inspires me to do better in the world: Steve Irwin. 🐊

Steve was much more than some kooky dude who was obsessed with wildlife and nature. He was a man of strength.
He was a man of perseverance.
He was a man who said, “hey, you might be a crocodile, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to try to bro down with you.”
He was a man who made Crocodile Dundee seem like a complete fraud.
So it’s only right that the home of the Sydney Opera House and the guy who threw his phone at someone want Steve Irwin to be on official currency. Yes, there’s a petition to put the late, great crocodile hunter on money, and this sounds like the best idea ever.
Think about it: Who has done more for Australia than Steve Irwin? See, you thought about it and couldn’t come up with one name.
And if you check social media, Steve is just as popular now as when he was still with us.
Steve Irwin is a fucking legend

As you can see, Steve Irwin was the Harambe of human beings—beloved and cut down in his prime.
The petition is closing in on 25,000 signatures, so it’s definitely gonna have an impact. Do yourself a favor, sign it yourself, and let this Australian icon shine like the bright star that he was. No one deserves it more.
