Kim Jong-Il Will Be Embalmed

Kim Jong-il is getting the Lenin treatment. North Korea announced that their recently deceased leader will be embalmed and laid in state next to his father, Kim Il-sung, in Pyongyang. The regime also said it is setting up “smiling portraits” of the former leader throughout the country. When Kim Il-sung died in 1994, he was embalmed by a team from Moscow at a cost of $1 milion.
