This is no grosser than the fact that Lenin's dead body is on display for tourists...I guess the eating part of it is, though! Here's a clip from Wikipedia on the corpse subject:

The family of Lenin's embalmers states that the corpse is real and requires daily work to moisturise the features and inject preservatives under the clothes. Lenin's sarcophagus is kept at a temperature of 16°C and kept at a humidity of 80 - 90 percent. The chemical used was referred to by the caretakers as "balsam", which was glycerine and potassium acetate. Every eighteen months the corpse is removed and undergoes a special chemical bath. The chemicals that were unknown until after the fall of the Soviet Union were kept secret by authorities. The bath consists of placing the corpse in a glass bath with potassium acetate, alcohol, glycerol, distilled water, and as a disinfectant, quinine. This was the process used for all subsequent treatments of Lenin's body and continues to be used even now. [1]

EEEEEEWWWWWWW... icon_surprised.gif

Yipes! I can't imagine wanting to go see a corpse on display--much less being the 'caretakers' and having to do all the ...preserving work. icon_redface.gif ----that's as close as I could come to *about to be sick*
