More Dumb Questions than You Can Shake a Stick at

I love hearing stupid questions people ask about twins, and especially possible snappy comebacks.  In a few short months, I'll get to employ these comebacks myself, but until then, I'll have to live vicariously.  This thread on Facebook by TWINS Magazine contains an overflowing number of dumb comments from strangers.  Some are pedestrian, but some are great:
  • How can they be fraternal if they are both girls?
  • Are they both yours?
  • They CANNOT be twins, they are NOT dressed the same.

  1. Hmmm... The first dumb Q. sort of makes sense, "Fraternal" being one of those surviving sexist terms that have stayed in the lexicon. It's subtle, but the question is technically correct. How CAN they be "of, relating to, or involving brothers" when they are girls?
