Seeing Double…

– – Two-headed calves have been staples at sideshow exhibitions for ages, some legitimate specimens and others shameless patch jobs.  Most of the genuine items, however, were preserved animals that didn’t live long.  Two-headed animals who live can become a valuable commodity.

A two-headed calf born this month in Egypt is the real deal, having two heads each with its own set of eyes and a mouth; it is expected to live.  Similar specimens may command thousands of dollars, depending on the bidding war over them.

    I hear even Alexander the Great’s horse had two heads! His name was…Bicephalous.

      What could be more fitting, or more appropriate? With such a horse, Alexander could see where he was coming from as well as where he was going!
