Well, if he refuses to let go of the coffin, just go ahead and bury them both. That way, he can serve Lenin in the afterlife. And while we're talking about the burial ceremony, throw about 10 or so cans of spam, a pitbull, a cat you don't like, and Helen Thomas in the same hole, too.

We must recall that Gorbie never wanted to end communism. At best he wanted to make it more palatable.

Melt the sumbitch down into votive candles for the churches of St. Petersburg. That works on a number of levels...

I like your idea, but I would prefer rending him down and making urinal cakes for use at the NYSE.

You can never find a good wood chipper with the discharge aimed into a hog lot when you need one.

Even Vladdy L didn't want to become the conversation piece that he is. Bury him in the Kremlin Wall and get rid of the gaudy tourist trap his mummy has become.
