ATP, but you would need a way to circulate it.

I vote for vodka. But use the cheap kind AstroChuck, why waste money on somebody who isn’t even going to say thank you…?!

The folks with the most inventive answers to this would probably be murder mystery writers.

You could use solarium, the chemical that makes people zombies!

Just keep it really warm and inject it with WD-40. That little red tube that comes with WD-40 would work great for sticking in a corpse.

Sulfuric acid would keep it loose, but you wouldn’t have much of a corpse afterwards.
