Hope For Siamese Twin Separation

George and Tony may soon be separated thanks to recent advances in nanosurgery



Washington, D.C (JP) - Born joined at the head, Siamese twins George and Tony may soon be separated thanks to recent advances in nanosurgery. Doctors Kettering and Brownose, buoyed by success in similar operations on monkeys, believe that there's clearly a "good chance" that the operation will be a success - even though there's a 10% chance that one or both of the men won't survive.

George and Tony - flag carrying members of their countries!

Siamese Twins George and Tony spectral imagery shows what they could become if they don't get separated real soon...

Forced to do everything together ever since birth, Kettering stated that "these two men are a living nightmare - they have no quality of life, and they're having catastrophic effects on their environment."

Further complications are expected, however, since George has no heart, while Tony seems to have no balls. But according to Brownose, these are not insurmountable obstacles.

"If these were normal people, I think that I would be quite concerned," Brownose told joe-ks.com. "However, with politicians, this is very seldom an issue."

With only one spine, it's no wonder their constituents call them 'spineless' - but we're not sure which one they're referring to.

X-Ray shows that George & Tony have only one spine - but which one is the spineless one?

The operation is planned for the end of 2004 if the twins decide to go ahead with the separation. If successful, one will be shorter than the other.

If successful, one of the ex-Siamese twins will be shorter... another puppet for George!

If the operation is not successful, they'll soon be separated by their own polls...
