Stuck On you

Abigail and Brittany Hensel are 18-year-old dicephalus twins that have two spines, which join at the pelvis, two hearts and stomachs, three kidneys, two gall bladders and four lungs.

They share one liver and ribcage and a nervous system. Below the waist all organs including intestines, bladder and reproductive organs are shared.

Each twin controls one side of the body and they can play the piano, swim, ride a bike, play Twister, drive a car and take part in sports including boxing in which they fight themselves.

Born on March 7, 1990, in Minnesota, are thought to be one of only four sets of dicephalus twins ever to survive into teen years.

The twins even hope to marry someday, not each other that would be sick but to some man or two maybe.

Their f
ather, Mike, believes that there is no reason why the girls shouldn't marry someday, saying "They're good-looking girls. They're witty. They've got everything going for them, except they're together."

Are you a fella that has a melted twin fantasy? or two guys that don't mind sharing? I can see parental issues in the future and what would happen if the girls wanted to split up from their husbands?

OBB News wishes the girls good luck but this reporter could not take nagging in stereo.
