Two Siamese twins, who were not separated at birth or any time, were going on vacation, but needed to be back home within exactly one week from the time they left. However, one of them wanted to go to Paris, France, and the other wanted to go to Sydney, Australia. They found a way that they could both stay at their preferred vacation place for three and a half days. How did they do it?



Answer

They were not conjoined twins. They were Siamese twins -- that is, twins from Siam.

Thanks! This is the only one of my teasers I can't take credit for; it was given to me by my nephew =)

However, you said they weren't separated at any time, implying they did everything - including their vacation - together (conjoined or not).

Very true. I suppose it should say "surgically separated."

Here's my answer, which doesn't depend on a different than normal definition of Siamese twin:

They were both Siamese twins...but not joined to each other.

Great point Mark! I never thought of that.
