A large explosion of undetermined cause erupted from the hind quarters of Comrade Vladimir Lenin blowing a huge hole through his pants and coat in St. Petersburg yesterday.
The explosion left a crater 80-100 cm (31-39 inches). Fortunately no one was standing behind Lenin at the time of the eruption so there were no casualties from the explosion.
Despite this unfortunate event Lenin’s body remains on display in a mausoleum. Pic at source.
