|At $.015 per rouble this extravagant-|
looking cash fan is barely enough to
settle the bill at Olive Garden.
Wait, wah? Yeah. So why and how the shit are they spending $200,000 to keep Lenin's body looking Revolution-fresh after nine decades?
|He smells Revolution fresh as well...revolutions|
smell like formaldehyde and paraffin wax, right?
|Or teaming up with re-animated Stalin|
for a wacky Odd-Couple-like comedy
TV series. Coming this fall on ABC!
The why they're doing this is a little more complicated because according to an online survey, Russians also think this is creepy and pointless and overwhelmingly favor just burying the guy. I suppose it's not that much money when you're talking about a national budget but it's still 100% more than we spent stuffing Woodrow Wilson.
|Here in America we use advanced imagineering techniques to recreate our leaders as|
edutaining animatronic mannequins who bring history to life. Well, as close to life as
you can get with a bunch of dead-eyed glorified Teddy Rukspins in powdered wigs.
