Conjoined Twins
Contest Directions: Conjoined twins are two people whose bodies are joined together. Usually they want to separate, since it's impossible to make independent decisions as you are joined with your relative for the rest of your life. In other words it's like a marriage in Arkansas.
In this contest you are asked to create conjoined twins using celebrities or politicians. You can use two different people, or sources of the same person. Blend them into one entity. Two headed politicians, four legged dancers, three armed wrestlers for example will all work.

This contest is fueled by the following news: The conjoined twins Abygail and Madysen Fitterer that were separated at Mayo Clinic are doing rather well two weeks after the surgical operation. Doctors said that the twins are growing stronger every day. The Siamese twins were born joined at chest (xiphopagus), and are currently on life support with ventilators. However their lungs are growing and they need less and less of a breathing support. The newborn girls were in cardiac intensive care unit but are now in pediatric intensive care unit at Mayo Clinic and are on a long way to a recovery. Formally speaking, conjoined twins are those twins who have joined body parts. This rare process happens when the zygote of identical twins does not fully separate and creates two joined bodies rather than two separate ones. Conjoined twins happen only about once per 200,000 birth cases and are often stillborn. The chances of survival for the Siamese twins are usually below thirty percent and most of these twins are females. Through the history there were many famous conjoined twins. The most famous pair - Chinese brothers Chang and Eng Bunker (18111874) - were born in city of Siam, which is now known as Thailand. The twins joined the P.T. Barnum's circus and made a living traveling with this circus during their lifetime. It is after these twins and the city of Siam the term Siamese Twins is coined, and is now used as a synonym for a formal medical term conjoined twins. The Chinese brothers were joined at the chest and could be surgically separated these days, like the girl twins at Mayo Clinic. Sometimes conjoined twins have part of their brains joined together and such cases are the most difficult surgical operations of separation. One of the Siamese twins may develop normally, while the second one may act as a parasite of the body of the fully developed twin- condition known as asymmetric conjoined twins or parasitic twinning. In some rare cases one twin absorbs another in their development which doctors call inclusion twinning.
