Heart Ache. Chavez canít be permanently embalmed and displayed
Hot Air.com ^ | March 17, 2013 | JAZZ SHAW

Posted on 03/17/2013 6:19:08 PM PDT by Kaslin

This will probably come as a crushing blow to Chris Hayes, (the legacy of Hugo Chavez is “complicated” donchaknow…) but it seems that the dictator may miss out on his chance to become a permanent national monument in corpse form. It turns out that the process to permanently embalm and display the now room temperature leader would take a bit more work than can be managed.

Venezuela’s information minister says the government has decided that the body of Hugo Chavez will not be embalmed for permanent display, as officials had said it would be.

Ernesto Villegas’ tweet Friday night says the government has discarded the option based on the advice of a Russian medical commission.

The message says the commission had said Chavez’s body would have to be sent to Russia for seven to eight months to be properly embalmed.

Well, this is about the most distressing news to come out since the Girls Gone Wild team had to file for bankruptcy. Without having the Chavez corpse to visit and look at, Venezuela may have to put in a socialist version of Disneyland or something. ( The It’s a Small World ride should be a real hoot.) But I suppose I can see why they went to the Russians to make the decision. I mean, they’ve got all of that experience with, er…

LeninTomb

Anyway, I know you’re all totally interested in all of the science involved here, so let’s go to the video. Then you can debate the political and mortuary ramifications of… Naw. Just kidding. Let’s go with the Girls Gone Wild bankruptcy story. It’s probably more relevant anyway.

I’m an optimist.

If life gives you a dead Chavez, make glue.

They screwed up. They’re stupid. This is basic stuff. You only have a short window of time after passing to permanently preserve someone. It’s not like he died suddenly and they didn’t have time to plan for this. The guy was terminally ill for months.

Maybe they could buy one of those Disney Animatronic
figures from Disneyland, a few hundred pounds of
pancake make up and they’d have just the thing.

all....errrk...”.

It's state run medical and professional services.

Look on the bright side. It's "free."

The taxidermist thing would work, he could be
posed holding a big acorn with his cheeks stuffed full
....although perhaps a Hugolope would be more fitting,
antlers and all.

This could become an world trend you know.
I’m sure freepers could think of several ways
to preserve other stuffed world leaders in their
natural settings.

I don’t understand. Can’t Cuba help? What with their advanced socialized medicine and technical knowhow that kept Chavez alive far beyond God’s will, I’d think Havana would have a corresponding socialized embalming service to make this work...

Leftists’ gods - strong arm government officials. Extremely creepy.

If they had any shame, they would hide their faces. If they had any wisdom, they would know they are dumb as dirt.

Instead, they think they are standing on the “high moral ground” and are the smartest people on earth.

Probably likely. They should call Madame Tussauds in London and get a wax replica of the old bastard. And then go get the Billion dollars he pilfered from the people of Venezuela back as well.

Sheesh, just get a plastic barbie doll that resembles Chavez and all the lefties will be visiting the mausoleum going “ooh, aah” at the sight of this dead fakir.

Just ask them one question — “Where do you think this guy resides?”

Whether they answer: “Heaven” or “Hell”, it only means that they believe in a higher Being.

Not that I care one whiff about his pig slop corpse but why don’t the chavistas make a wax model of El Puerco with his commie fist salute as he stands with the parrot on his shoulder? Have it mounted on top of his grave for close, authentic proximity. No fuss, no muss with preservation issues.

Aw, heck . . . just have Madame Tussaud’s Wax Works make a wax dummy of Hugo and put him on display like Lenin's corpse in Venezuela’s version of Red Square. The the faithful followers of Chavez can come there to view their false god that failed. The real Hugo can get planted in his home town according to his wishes (or dumped at sea).

Is there a photo out there in cyberworld of Hugo in his coffin? Why didn’t they allow or at least have an official photo of him dead. After all they were going to embalm him anyway? Or was that just another convenient leftist lie for the sheeples to adoringly digest? I think so!

To #12: They should have embalmed him while he was still alive. Would have had a better chance of getting him to look real. Shees. I’ve told those guys, “Timing is everything”, but “Noooo, they wouldn’t listen to me”.
