Conjoined twins Lori and Dori (George)Schappell

Yeah...and I get upset if I get a zit.

I'm sure many of you are aware of their story.

They're joined at the head. Dori identifies as male and is known as George.

I wish I had a quarter of their courage.


How would you cope with this situation?

I would probably have the dog removed. Tough enough being joined at the head let alone have a dog attached to your chins.

Dog does not want. Turtle seems fine with the situation though.

Re: Conjoined twins Lori and Dori (George)Schappell

Is it really "coping" though since they've lived with this their entire lives? Wouldn't it just be a way of life for them?

Re: Conjoined twins Lori and Dori (George)Schappell

Reading the Wiki I learned that Lori has spent her life attached to Dori/Reba/George a physically impaired transsexual who converted to Mormonism (did they have to go on a Mission?), owns a rat dog and fancies her/himself a professional musician even though if memory serves she really sucks at it.

If reincarnation exists, I think we have found Hitler's soul.

Re: Conjoined twins Lori and Dori (George)Schappell

From Wiki:
"They live in a two bedroom apartment, each maintaining their own private space. George has several pets. Lori is a trophy-winning bowler. They respect each other’s privacy in terms of work time, recreation and relationships.[1] Lori has had several boyfriends and was engaged to be married, but lost her partner in a motor accident.[1] "

What happens if one of them is having sex and the other has to take a dump?

I don't care what the situation is...my best friend, my brother or whatever...I'm not holding my dump for any reason.

What happens if one of them kills someone, while the other one is sleeping?

I think I saw them at the John Hughes High School dance ... "Put your heads on my shoulder ..."

But the one who dies second gets an automatic A in all her classes that semester, so it's not all bad.
