One of those AP wire stories that makes you ralize this is—thank goodness-a slow news day:
Nashville, TN - Last week to the amazement of everyone, three souls were brought into the world. The amazing part is that these three souls all happen to be connected to each other’s body. “I had 8 children already and thought I knew enough about being pregnant so I decided not to go to the doctor and just wing it,” said the mother. “I knew I had 3 fetuses inside me because I have had twins before and knew what multiple ones felt like.” “When they turned out to be triplets connected at the hip, I rushed her to the hospital for special help,” says the father.
The parents knew that they were special babies and needed special names. “We decided to call them Bob, Bobby, and Bobrella after our favorite person, Psychic Bob, and we hope to get contact with him to ask if our babies will live long enough to turn at least 25,” comments the parents.
The Siamese triplets all have separate organs except for their feet and legs. The parents plan not to separate them because they are worth a lot more money to them if they are not cut into three people. “No one wants to see a freak show with three former Siamese triplets, they want the real deal and the real deal pays!” explains the mother.
—Note: I hope, I reallllly hope, it turns out that the newswires were faked out by some trickster . . .
