CARACAS CARCASS - Venezuela's government said on Wednesday it may not be possible to embalm the remains of late leader Hugo Chavez as planned because the process should have been started earlier.

FTFY NBC

If he's gone off, they should just put him in a jar of formaldehyde.  Or maybe they could just stuff him like a bear or something.

First cancer, now embalming fluid. Next up: Hugo Chavez becomes one of the walking undead, after Hell rejects him.

Cut his head off and graft it onto the Vice President's shoulder.

What about the reports that the stiff that was presented in the funeral was not Chavez' body but only a wax dummy, because Chavez actually died a month ago and their people had to keep that a secret for his VP to take over?  It has been reported that the wax dummy incident was the reason why Brazil's president Dilma Rousseff and Argentina's PM Christina Kirchner suddenly decided to skip the funeral event and unexpectedly bailed out without providing much of an explanation.

actually both aquaman and plastic man are pretty badass in the flashpoint series https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashpoint_%28comics%29

Also Aquaman is one of the best of the DC new 52 comics both in art style and story

Doesn't embalmed Lenin require constant touchup? It doesn't seem worth the effort. Just build a statue.

I promise that I'm not trolling here. What specifically did Chavez do that was so evil? Great leader? No, but he did focus on poverty, the influence of oil money in politics, human rights, etc. Maybe those efforts were just a failure, but I'm missing why this guy is compared to some of the worst tyrants in history (not on Fark necessarily, but elsewhere)

I'm not a fan, but I'm not pissing on his grave either.

speaking of dead dictators, what ever happened to the Yasser Arafat re-autopsy?

since they didn't find some bombshell to blame on the Jews, evidently, what happened?

/ probably too expensive to mummify Chavez, or the foreigners wanted hard currency

The government had said it planned to embalm Chavez's remains "for eternity" in much the same way as was done with the remains of Soviet leaders Lenin and Stalin and communist Chinese leader Mao Zedong after they died.

Communists are friggin' weird.

lulz... you posted a funny pic. That is hilarious. Bravo.

I'm indifferent to the passing of Chavez. He was a nut and obsessed with Simon Bolivar, a conspiracy theorist, opposed supposed "American Imperialism". According to Wikipedia (apologize for the lazy cut and paste) Chavez "increased government funding of health care and education, and significant reductions in poverty, according to government figures. Under Chavez, Venezuelans' quality of life improved according to a UN Index and the poverty rate fell from 48.6 percent in 2002 to 29.5 percent in 2011, according to the U.N. Economic Commission for Latin America."

But perhaps at some cost because the crime rates in Venezuela increased. I'm sure his negligence had something to do with that. He was close to Castro and Ahmadinejad. What evil did Chavez engage in that offset the positive impact he had on Venezuela during his 15 years as president? Is his association with Ahmadinejad and Castro part of what makes him evil?
