OK so I am not alone in finding a humorous side to Rasputin's murder.

It's awful because after all this is a human being losing his life, but yes, I've always felt there were farcical elements to the repeated attempts to kill Rasputin. 'If the cakes won't do it perhaps the wine...', and he remained alive after being shot as well...

You folks are not alone..it's dark, farcical comedy at it's best (or worst depending on your point of view)...Prince Felix slipping down to the basement to have a peek at his handiwork, then running shrieking back up the staircase to retch in his mummy's bathroom when the undead starets opens his eyes to glare at his bumbling assassin. I howl every time!

But it's the photo of Rasputin's frozen and battered corpse dredged up from the Neva that is no laughing matter.

It's gruesome.
