Double your pleasure. Double your built-in chaps.

Omigoodness! One of them was my teacher in high school! I remember her showing us the picture. It was at a festival for twins I think. (:
Chaps pants! I remember those! We all thought we looked so great in those! Thanks for the chuckle.
I’m a identical mirror twin, and the one way to tell me and my sister apart is by seeing who had the two dimples on our cheeks when we where younger.
I went to school with a set of fraternal set of twins, both girls. There was also a set of older female twins, and two sets of boys in the upper years. My grandmother said something had to be in the water.
I have a set of twin boy cousins on my father’s side of the family, and on my mother’s side, a set of step-uncles.
thie reminds me of the “can you spot the difference between the two” LOL
THE FEMALE TWIN ON THE RIGHT WAS ONE OF MY HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAHHAHA!!! I remember her twin sister coming in one day to class. TOO FUNNY!
The guy on the far right looks like Nicholas Cage!
i always love this photo, bu not from an akwardness ancle, but because i find it totally nice…
arn’t those the twins in Beaches???
Arn’t those girls the twins in Beaches. They play cousins who are fans of CC Bloom and ask for an autograph and picture with her. Anybody with me here???
The guy twins look like Patrick Dempsey (from Grey’s Anatomy); especially the guy on the right.
The brothers look like a magical mix between Patrick Dempsey and Kenny G!
I realize that Richard passed away but I have often pondered this question–if two identical twins married two identical twins and had children, would their children look alike? Any such case of this scenario happening?
Actually that has happened. I’m not sure if the children looked alike but genetically speaking they were full sublings because their parents had identical DNA.
I never though of that, but it is the most awesome thing I’ve heard so far this year!
Siblings? No way! Never thought of that either.
They would have exactly the same chance of looking alike as any two siblings. Siblings can share from 0% (unlikely) to 100% (unlikely) of their DNA. The average shared DNA for siblings is 50%. This is because each child inherits a random 50% of each parent’s DNA. This is easier to show with a chart.
Punnett squares. Loved them!
I’m sure the Pepsi people are furious about this.
I was thinking Pepsi oughta get their hands on this and use it
Last time I have drinks before noon, I’m seeing double!
are they standing next to a mirror
i feel like i’m looking at a highlights magazines ‘find the difference’ section.
If you look at the guys really close they kinda look like Patrick Dempsey!
I know the girl on the left since childhood but who’s that other one? Don’t recognize her at all and I never forget a face.
OMG….I’m dying! That’s freakin’ hysterical!
hahahahaha! I just *know* this is going to come back at me in my dreams tonight!!
To the people who say “They look alike. You can’t tell which one is A and which one is B”: You must’ve not spent any time around any twins. No twins look or act so much alike that one can’t tell who is who after being around them for a while. I went to school for years with two sets of twins, one set male, one set female and after a while, they looked so individual.
I honestly don’t get the awkward part!
you think the girls like chaps ?
Chaps in chaps
I also am sorry for his loss. The picture, however, is hilarious. There are just so many things wrong with this picture………………………I can’t even stand it. It would be fun to see other pictures from the twins conventions!
I laughed so hard I choked. I wasn’t even drinking anything. I’m sorry one of them died, that def took the fun from the photo for me — until I looked at it again.
The tracksuit tops are cut from the same fabric, just not from the same exact place in the pattern repeat.
the couple on the left is cuter
Don’t hate… This was probably taken in Twinsberg back in the day… I think its priceless, and a once in a lifetime photo!
Is this a PEPSI ad or DOUBLEMINT?
Its actually kind of a cute picture.
Im pretty sure the woman is holding a Pepsi Clear!!!
Ernest is on the left. I work with him at the GM Spring Hill TN. plant. His brother also worked at the plant until his death.
The one on the left worked at the GM Spring Hill plant until the company died.
Thanks Scott….When I saw the photo I thought this was who they were. I was just shocked to see a photo of anyone from the plant here.
The one on the right is the spitting image of Adrian Brody…
Exactly what i thought too!
For some strange reason, I want to chew gum…
And ride on a tandem bike
Are those two a spin off of Millie vanillie?
kinda funny how the two people in the middle look genuinely happy, and the others on the ends look like they’re just smiling cause a picture’s being taken.
Ok, the girl at the right, if you bring a picture of Josh Lucas and paint him..that is the face!! honestly!!
twin on the left looks like David Beckham.
They both look the same…
No, I agree, the one on the left looks like David Beckham. The one on the right looks like one the Spice Girls.
uau, oh, … (lalalala) Now I believe in God…, thanks!
Pepsi’s least successful advertisment campaign.
Laughing so hard at that comment, Poopy Pantz, I almost became Pee-y Pantz!
clearly two of these people are unnecessary.
yes.but which two!?
lmao Doug. You just reminded me somehow of, “One of these things is not like the other” (only it is) “One of these things just doesn’t belong”
I used to see these guys in Nashville ,tn all the time at clubs . They had many outfits even more festive than this one…
Only in America ! You Septics crack me up….
what’s a septic?… I thought that’s where your poop goes!!!
…I’m american, but I dont think I fall into the category of ‘septic’
It’s cockney rhyming slang – septic tank = yank.
Clever. *rolls eyes*
This photo is legit. I know the twin men. This photo was probably taken at the Twinsburg Convention held in Twinsburg, Ohio. They used to go every year until unfortunately and regrettably, the twin on the right (Richard) passed away. This photo is definitely from the 90′s. I met them in 1995 and they wore the outfits then. They are great people with a different style. I was shocked when I came across this photo and actually knew these people in it. 2 kind men with large hearts.
how sad! what happened to Richard?
these people look really cute in an obnoxiously retro way…
It was cancer, and it happened very suddenly. It shocked and saddened all of us. Ernest still comes to Twins Days, mostly to be surrounded by people who understand his terrible loss.
I am so sorry. Thay look like they were all having a great time!
Is it just me, or do the guys look like non beefy hugh jackmans?
I thought the same thing when I 1st glanced!
Actually, my first thought was “OMG, they cloned Pauly Shore!” RIP Pauly on the right…
Just too fun pic.
Hugs from Norway
that didnt just make all of us here feel totally AWKWARD .
Come on now! You’re sucking the fun out of this Debbie Downer! I’m sure Richard is on the internet in that big twin convention in the sky laughing at this picture too.
i really hate to ask this question, but how do you know which one is which? AWKWARD!
Their necklaces, silly.
Come on now! Ya know people for years, ya know which one is which. Richard is shorter, too.
I am having a hard time beleiving you…… How would you know which twin is Richard….. You say … “the twin on the right (Richard) passed away”…. they look exactly alike… but YOU can tell them apart from a photo taken years ago????? Please….
If you know twins, it’s impossible NOT to tell them apart… two of my best friends from grade school are identical twins, and when I first met them it was impossible for me to tell them apart, now I can’t imagine how I couldn’t originally. I’m imagining she’s a twin herself, so that must intensify there differences even further for her.
ack! I have a cold, so please excuse my crappy grammar… *their differences.
(yes, I am one of those obnoxious people that corrects their own grammar)
Actually, you are one of those obnoxious people WHO corrects his or her own grammar.
Also, she said that Ernest (Left) still comes every year, so she has seen him since then, and if you look at their faces you can see differences so she knows which one is Ernest and therefore which one is Richard.
I have 25 year old identical twins. I can tell them apart when most people cannot.
My husband (their father) cannot always tell them apart. I think he takes a guess
I was the oldest in a family of 6 kids that featured two sets of twins (but I’m not a twin, and my youngest brother lived just 6 weeks). The first set of twins were identical boys, and the second set were a boy and a girl…and from my mother’s second marriage.
Anyway, I NEVER mixed up my identical brothers, even when our mother had trouble. They always looked very different to me, and had very different personalities, styles and interests, especially as they hit high school.
Yes, It’s called the powers of observation. Again, look closely at their faces. They have differences in facial features and Richard is shorter.
I can tell them apart..
Dude, they look so different. Attention to detail.
U GUYS ARE BRINGING BACK THE 80S ARENT U?
Nothing said 80′s like fuschia track suits.
I have known them both for many years it is true that Richard has passed Ernest on the right is doing well in middle TN with a beautiful family Both men where class acts in every way and 2 of the best repair techs i have had the pleasure of knowing Gods Greatest to all
This was definitely taken at the annual Twins Days festival (twin is holding festival program), probably early 90s. I have been attending the festival since 1978 and have gotten to know Ernest quite well in last few years (he still attends to reunite with his twin friends and to honor his brother). Truly a kind-hearted soul.
I am sure if I looked, many Twins Days photos could qualify as an awkward family photo. Good times!
