Six weeks after Steve Irwin got on the wrong side of a sting-ray, James Bertakis was boating along the Intracoastal Waterway somewhere around Ft. Lauderdale when, according to the Chicago Tribune, a spotted eagle ray "...burst from the water and stuck his chest with its barb."
The gutsy 81-year-old got his boat to land and called 911.
Believe it or not, according to reports the spike nailed him in the ticker. At this time, the stickee is reported to be alive.
Somebody -- anybody --What are the chances of two men getting run through the heart by rays within six weeks of each other?
It's a piscean plot. The insidious stingray plan to Take Over The World is beginning.
Not only that, but when you've got rays jumping out of the water to stick a target in a moving boat, it becomes fairly obvious that you're dealing with Ninja rays.
I don't know about y'all, but I'm going to be checking the khazi for infiltrators and sneaking up on the kitchen sink for the next month or so, just to be safe.
