Where to begin, where to begin? A joke about Siamese twins? Copy cats? Yeah, no: those weren’t funny the last time this happened. Maybe a ponderance on whether stripes clash with calico, or if the litter box flushes the other way around in the Southern Hemisphere? Okay, I’ll shut up now.

Many may take the surprising increase in two-headed animal births as a sign of, if not the End of Times, at least something creepy and sinister. According to the Herald, even hardened firsthand eyewitness Louisa Burgess was taken aback:

Louisa Burgess, a veterinary nurse who helped deliver the kitten, told InMyCommunity.com.au that she had never seen such an unusual animal in her 12-year career.

“I have seen cats with two tails and extra legs, but not this,” she said.

I don’t know about the End of Times, but prudence might suggest checking the shelf life of the peanut butter in panic room and stocking up on Bat(tm) Two-Faced Adversary Repellent.

…and one for good luck

Texas, temporarily stealing the Spotlight o’ Weird from reigning champion New Jersey, has officially one upped their own UFO sighting. It seems that one of the seven kittens delivered by Amber, a Persian mix, was born with two faces.

No, literally:

In sert your own joke about how *all* cats are two faced.

Yes, yes, I know it look Photoshopped, but I lifted it fair and square from a reputable news source (metro.co.uk), and it’s got one of those flashy AP copyrights on it, which screams of legitimacy. Gold star for the person with the funniest Siamese cat joke.
