Thought for the day.

Acupuncture is the ancient and revered tradition of sticking pins into
people to make them feel better.

Voodoo is the ancient and revered tradition of sticking pins into things that look like people in order to make them feel worse.

The question is; if an identical twin has acupuncture, is his brother in trouble?

Sorely tempted to investigate this with a big needle and the unnatural number of twins I seem to know.

Tee hee hee!

I am a twin! Should i try it?

Possible only if you consider the second twin a 'thing' ;)

Faith Walker said...

Well, she is a bit annoying...

I mentioned this at the pub last night and ended up in a huge arguement with someone who was trying to explain the difference to me between acupuncture and voodoo.

They also spent over 30 minutes telling me that for voodoo you need a piece of the person's DNA, and wouldn't believe me that identical twins have identical DNA.

Serves me right for trying to steal someone's witty amusing observation.

"Is the twin in trouble?"

Probably, if for no other reason than he has a stupid and gullible brother.

(Tell me you don't believe in this shit?)

Faith - you should definitely try it. Let me know how it goes

Lily - I once spent about half an hour winding up one of my mates with this. Every time he tried to convince me of the "science" behing acupuncture, I'd apply his same words to voodoo and it wound him up a treat.
