Social Tip #35 - Conjoined Twins

I saw a special on conjoined twins, Lori and Dori Schappell. They are even more interesting than normal conjoined twins, because these girls are conjoined at the head. And one of the twins is much larger than the other, so the larger one's lot in life includes dragging the littler one around on a cart. Dragging her around by the head.

I became obsessed with these girls. I don't usually get starstruck, but it is different when you've watched a video of your favorite celebrities being removed from a uterus.

I defy you not to love them, they really seem happy in every interview they've given. They even have different career aspirations, which blows my mind. I can't believe I'd succeed at anything, and these girls think they can do two different things.

The small girl on the cart wants to be a country singer, I guess it makes sense to develop some lofty goals if you travel everywhere by head-cart. And she was met with some success, actually. Her music can be heard at the end of the movie "Stuck on you."

The other girl wanted to be a dentist. Holy cat barf! Not only are you going to go to eight years of college, but you are going to do it while dragging a person around by the head? Good for you!

My only real concern is.... aren't people are already afraid to go to the dentist?

That's so bizarre you'd post this today. I just started watching Nip / Tuck not long ago and the episode I saw last night featured these two as guest stars! GET OUT OF MY HEEAD!!

Skizzobt, having someone get out of your head when your head has two heads in it might prove problematic.

Maybe you should get those two heads out of your head.

They say two heads are better than one, but in this case, maybe zero heads would be better to have in your head than two heads or one head.
