Q: Is Chairman Mao's corpse real?

The Great Helmsman's bloated orange corpse is on display in Tiananmen Square. I've seen it, it's pretty nauseating, but is it real? I've people swearing it is, and others who swear it isn't.

Chinese law requires cremation of all the dead. But if it's Chairman Mao, maybe they kept him preserved, but I highly doubt it would be real.

It's China, so of course it isn't real.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
