It is so infuriating when I hear about some centarian who attributes their Iong life to something like this. I remember an English guy who attributed his long life to brandy and cigarettes. But I will admit it is because I know d never get away with it the way these guys do.

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

These guys are awesome. I just edited Wikipedia to make them the oldest. So suck it.

I wish there was a cure for my meat.

Congratulations you sweet old bastards. I hope you live for another hundred.

That's a lot of twins.

And yet you'll happily sleep with humans, amirite?

I liked the bit where the midwife suggested drowning one twin. That's practical prairie healthcare, right there.

I kinda hate articles like this since I know that in a short time another new World's Oldest "Twins", "Horse", "Tree" etc etc will appear on Fark... due to the obvious caveat of being the "Oldest" of anything.

Cool people and all though. The Dakotas/ Montana area seems to be a decent place to grow to an old age, especially if you get good at hibernation.

That's my thought exactly. I mean, I was a SINGLE baby and was only 7 lb 4 oz. Their mother must have been a planet and a half.

Ok, assuming you are not trolling and are actually that ignorant I'll let you know that this is not common behavior for pigs. Due to not having sweat glands they use mud to regulated body temperatures. If people do not house them properly they will have to defecate in their mud. But this is due to humans putting them in bad facilities. Large pig farms don't allow these type of conditions to occur. It's usually with smaller substance farming that just keeps them in a pen that forces them to come into contact with their feces. They sure don't eat it.

My grandmother just died in April and was 95 years old - I truly do not think she ever ate anything that was not fried. If she did, it had to be cooked down in meat grease until it was a greasy little pulp of vegetables...

I always felt like I had been swimming in valvoline after meals at her house when I was a kid.

RIP grandma :(

The brothers grew up together, worked together and lived near each other. Tom claims they never had a disagreement.

Vern: "Did so!"

Tom: "Did not!"

Vern: "Did so!"

Tom: "Did not!"

Vern: "Wanna bet?"

Tom: "F*ck you!"

Vern: "Come at me, bro!"

My twins were 5 lbs 9 oz and 5 lbs even. OMFG indeed. Glad I ended up having to deliver at 35 weeks and 2 days.

I'm intrigued that they drink vinegar water every day. For the last year or so, I've been drinking organic raw apple cider vinegar in water with honey twice a day. It could be a coincidence or altogether unrelated, but I've got more energy lately, and after major surgery was back at work after a week and a half instead of a month. Just had a birthday too and I've heard that I look several years younger than I am.

I hope if I live that long, I still have my wits about me.

One of my sons was 11lbs 8oz. People looked at me like it was my fault.

"Oooh, your baby's BIG!" is something I heard over and over and over again. Got really sick of it, so I came up with some responses that, as it turned out, weren't too appreciated:

"Really? Gee, I never noticed."
"Yeah, ever since we took him off the heroin...[or crack, whatever came to mind]."
"Well, that's because we FEED children in MY family."
"YOUR baby's not done yet. Put it back in to finish cooking."

Sheesh.

Try "he was actually one of a pair of twins but he ate the other while he was in the womb".

Thank you for your input, Dr. farkwit, but you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground. Mother and child were both healthy throughout the pregnancy and at birth. Sometimes kids are just born big.
