    This might be the saddest one you’ve written about.

    I agree…I think it’s the picture of the little boy with his “brother”–something about the expression on his face.

  3. Mousie says:

    Aw, poor kid. I wonder what they did with his ‘brother’…

    Thank God we live in the days where medical procedures are more readily available with a high success rate. If I had a child born like that I would have the seperation done ASAP so the kid could grow up normal.
    Those days must have been horrible for these people who lived as sideshow freaks. They are humans who just went a bit wrong in the womb.

    I believe you have missed the point of this article entirely.

  6. Sarah says:

    Ernie looks so sweet, and it looks like he’s holding his brother’s hand.

  7. Mae says:

    I find this story so depressing. Despite him being born with a parasitic twin, he loved his brother. I find it fascinating none-the-less.

    Agree with J Tithonus Pednaud. I found it fascinating, enlightening and not sad at all. In fact if anything I would say slightly on the happy side of neutral.

  9. Regretful says:

    There’s something lost in explaining the subtext. Why do I get the feeling that many of your readers are missing the point of the site entirely?

    Aaw, I think it’s aboslutely precious that he loved his “little brother”. Being a sympathetic person, I do find it a bit sad, but at awe nonetheless. Ernie supposedly had the intelligence of a 19 year old! And when you think about it, if every person is born with a soul, did Len’s soul connect with Ernie just as their body had? It’s very fascinating, and I will always have an inspiring fascination with people like this.

    He was from my hometown! It is always a surprise to see Winnipeg in articles like this. This is a sad tale, but I am glad that he did not die in the procedure and lived a long life. That is all that counts. Also, thanks to Stumbleupon for bringing me here.

    Is he still alive?

    I mean this is one of the most modern cases that I’ve come across yet there’s little mention of what happened later in his life.

  13. Me says:

    Many times, with the removal of a parasitic twin, people argue weather removing it would be a murder.
