Melting Popecicle

As if the idea of lining up to look at a dead body wasn’t enough to creep me out, now the official word is that JP2 wasn’t embalmed.
Those of you unfamiliar with the procedure, embalming is what allows a body sans life to remain, for all intents and purposes, not gross. It’s like a feeding tube, only it’s filled with formaldehyde. And if you don’t embalm a body, it starts to, for lack of a better word, decay. The Vatican isn’t saying exactly what was done to the body, saying only it was “prepared” for viewing — which to my ears means some major league Maybelline action.
Can you smelllllll what the Pope is cookin’?
