Oprah Winfrey offered to buy Steve Irwin statue
April 10th, 2009 - 2:51 pm ICT by ANI -
Washington, April 10 (ANI): Oprah Winfrey has been approached with an offer to buy a 60,000-dollar statue of tragic crocodile hunter Steve Irwin - because no one in his native Australia is interested in buying it.

Aussie sculptor Mitch Mitchell designed the two metre (6.5 foot)-high bronze tribute and hoped to sell it to a museum in Irwin’s native Melbourne.

However, Mitchell received no offers, which prompted him to approach the talk show queen, whose show Irwin appeared on before his death.

“He’s a Melburnian and he’s the most famous Australian there’s probably ever been,” Contactmusic quoted Mitchell as saying.

“It should stay in Melbourne. It’s the place of his birth and he deserves to be honoured, but nobody here wants to buy it,” Mitchell added.

(Go for it Oprah!!!)
