Too bad Roy Rogers is no longer with us…he’s an expert in this kind of thing…

From The Onion’s A.V. Newswire:

Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband would like to preserve and display her corpse after she dies

But rather than turn her into the raw muscles-and-tendons specimens glimpsed in Body Worlds, he’d like von Hagens to transform her into something more akin to Madame Tussauds, saying, “I would like to show the plastinated body of Zsa Zsa Gabor in the context of a scene in one of her films." The unsettling image of von Anhalt putting a stuffed-and-mounted Gabor in her Moulin Rouge costume on permanent display in his parlor aside, at least we know Gabor will die the way she lived: being humiliated by Frederic von Anhalt.

Personally, I think a tableau from Queen from Outer Space (1958) would draw a bigger crowd. Always play to your strengths.

Super creepy. Why won't this jerk just leave Zsa Zsa alone?

The Onion is always hilarious. :)

Some of these stars are just a few surgeries away from being a living piece of silicon, so it's not too far-fetched.

Seriously, it can be done, as attested by the traveling physiology show "Bodies: The Exhibit". By the way, it's an AWESOME testament to the incredible nature of this body we inhabit!

"Queen of Outer Space", my sisters and I thought that movie was such a hoot when we were kids! For years we'd taunt one another with cries of "Bochino, Bochino!"

I still think I prefer Zsa's baby sister. The one with the talent in the family.
