Move over Li'l Kim (and Lenin and Stalin and Bentham) in a Box: Here comes Hugo in a Box!

You just cannot make this stuff up.


Venezuela's acting president, Nicolás Maduro, has said that Hugo Chávez's embalmed body will be permanently displayed in a glass crystal casket so "his people will always have him". Maduro said the remains would be put on permanent display at the Museum of the Revolution, near the presidential palace where Chávez ruled for 14 years.
Maybe they'll place his autographed copy of Hegemony or Survival in Hugo's hands. That would make a nice display.


Just hope those embalmers do a half-way decent job, wouldn' t want those sulphurous odors to ruin the people's experience at the Museum of the Revolution
