Umm... That Reality Show About Conjoined Twins Debuts Tonight?

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 2:44 PM

Okay, so if you didn't hate me before (and I'm constantly reminded that you do), this should apply the final coat of icing on the cake.

Don't forget that the TV debut of Abby and Brittany debuts tonight at 10 pm on TLC! It's the reality show about ... umm... you know... conjoined twins, which I'm sure TLC will try to convince us is tastefully done. Here's the trailer if you haven't watched it already.

You probably have questions right? Well, Gawker has an article which answers your most pressing questions about Abby and Brittany, such as this:

How are they conjoined?
Abby and Brittany each have their own head, spine, heart, set of lungs, gallbladder, small intestine, and stomach. In broad terms, most everything else is shared. They have one wide ribcage two arms, two legs, two breasts, one bladder, one pelvis, and one set of reproductive organs. They were born with a third "rudimentary" arm protruding from their back, but this was surgically removed when they were very young, meaning it cannot appear as a straight-talking minor character in the series.

GAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! I KNOW I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO BE SENSITIVE ABOUT THIS BUT GAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!
