I knew about Chang and Eng

25 May
That’s an interesting rabbit hole:

History is always far more complicated and interesting than we think it may be.

    Yes, Chang and Eng’s story is very well known – or should be, but most people are ignorant of history.

    By the time the Civil War broke out, the twins were wealthy enough to have stopped touring and had retired to their South Carolina plantations (their wives were Southern Belle sisters). Unfortunately, they invested their fortunes in the Confederacy, which ruined them financially after the South’s defeat and they had to go back into business touring again.

    With the New Woke Order, will Chang and Eng now be vilified, their victim status as exploited Asian freaks of nature trumped by the fact that they were wealthy owners of black slaves?

    Clearly they didn’t have divided loyalties.

        Cheap one, I know, but you take them where you see them.

    Ever wonder how the two conjoined twins engaged in marital intimacy with the two sisters?

    Not much privacy, just saying… 😉

    Also wondering if they slept four to a bed… 😉

    Or maybe a king bed for the conjoined twin brothers, and a single bed for each wife/sister, except when intimate. 😉

    Don’t tell me you didn’t think these things; only I had the poor taste to bring them up, publicly. 😉

      The logistics had to be complicated, but where there is a will, there must be a way. 🙂
