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…
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.
Maybe they could make a glassfibre cast of him like they do with fish mounts?
Make Hugo happy, save his skeleton and put it on display every Halloween.
Well, I was going to make a pilgrimage to Venezuela to see the corpse d’etat. I guess I will have to try to sell my airline ticket.
There is that extreme taxidermist competition show on A&E........
Take him to a Taxidermist.
Chavez is going to be stuffed .. sitting up and flipping off the U.S. Par the course for Communists.
Sure he can.
He’d make a good dart board.
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.
Hugo ( turning towards you) “It’s a small world after
Is it possible he died earlier then they officially acknowledge?
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

antlers and all.
This could become an world trend you know.
I’m sure freepers could think of several ways

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.
Are you allowed to piss on it?
Hell, I only want to live long enough to take a wiz on Jane Fonda's grave. Hope I make it long enough that I don't have to do it from a wheel chair. ;~))
I guess they could stretch his hide over one of the mounts they use for boars and pigs!
