Doris and Betty in happier times - Not in Thailand

Conjoined twins Doris (aged 86) and Betty (aged 86) Peaswhistle were left devastated yesterday when they received a note of formal litigation from the Embassy of Thailand in London.

The litigation appears to refer to a book that Doris and Betty had published in 1950 when Doris was 21 and Betty was also 21.

Throughout the book, the girls are referred to as 'Siamese Twins' and this is apparently the cause of the problem.

A lawyer representing the Government of Thailand, Mr Lam Poon explained, 'We are constantly annoyed that in almost every instance of conjoined twins, reference is incorrectly being made to then being 'Siamese' wherever they originate from. This will no longer be tolerated'

In the meantime, Doris and Betty cannot understand all of the fuss.

'We cannot understand all of the fuss', said Doris (or Betty). 'We were born on the Isle of Wight, in Totland, which sounds a bit like Thailand, especially if I take my teeth out'.

The Thai Embassy refused to comment.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
