Widespread interest in the dead body of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has lead to a entrepreneurial bidding war for his corpse. Several large publicly held companies and multi-national corporations including Sony, Samsung, Westinghouse, Amana, Coca Cola, and Frigidaire have submitted independent proposals to the transitional Libyan government (NTC) and to the city of Misrata where his body is currently  decomposing in cold storage. Thousand of people have already lined up to see Gaddafi’s bullet riddled body and to take pictures lying next to him on a blood soaked mattress. Seeing a lucrative opportunity, these companies are seeking to take Gaddafi’s cadaver on the road for an extended world tour, possibly involving over a dozen countries and 3 different continents. Disney, In an admittedly controversial but creative business venture has also suggested placing Gaddafi in a permanent Disneyland attraction, tentatively called Mad Dog Muammar’s Desert Adventure. While Islamic law currently forbids the use of the dead for such purposes and has strict guidelines on the swift burial of the deceased according to Muslim tradition, legal maneuvering by entertainment lawyers representing globally recognized corporate sponsors, Gaddafi’s surviving family members and rebels from a coalition of local militia in Misrata are said to be close to hammering out a mutually beneficial agreement.
