How NOT to honour the memory of Steve Irwin by Ellerd on 27 September 2006 1:45am
 
Sorry, but I find this story to be weird. Perhaps slightly disgusting. Won't the lizard now have a taste for human flesh?

Aussie man's Irwin placenta tribute
Tuesday, September 26, 2006

An Australian man plans to feed his baby's placenta to a lizard in a tribute to the late Steve Irwin.

Wil Kemp, 21, says that it was Irwin who shaped his love for reptiles, and that by feeding the placenta to his pet goannas, his family will be brought closer to the reptile kingdom.

Mr Kemp, currently a reptile keeper at Rockhampton Zoo, Queensland, has already named his son Tai Irwin, a reference to the taipan snake and the late Crocodile Hunter.

The boy was born on September 5, the day after Irwin had his fatal encounter with a stringray.

Kemp and his fiance first thought of the placenta-feeding idea when nurses told them they could take the placenta home. They plan to feed it to their three goannas, which live in a pit in their garden, at a celebration when they bring the child home on Sunday.

Kemp commented: 'I think we'll just break some beers, chuck it in and do it.'

"Hey, has anyone seen Baby today? And why is that lizard so fat?"

This just reminded me of the most gut-wrenching laugh I had from watching MXC. Vic asked Kenny what today's septic sludge was, and I can't even remember the whole thing, but it was like, "Today's septic sludge is afterbirth from Louie's House of Labor!"
