Being a twin means you don't come into the world alone. From birth to the end of time, there's always going to be someone who was not only born at the same time as you, but will most of the time look like you. Because of this intrinsic link, it means you'll spend the rest of your life having "moments" no one else alive can understand...unless they, too, are a twin.


Reddit user, u/mazimai, wanted twins to take a turn and speak up when they asked:

Twins of reddit, what's your embarrassing story involving your twins partner?

Who Did You Think You Saw?

Was going down an escalator at a casino. Look across and see my brother! Get the excites and yell HEY BRO! Start waving for his attention!

Was waving to myself in a mirror.

The Link Is Stronger With Witchcraft

My mom is an identical twin. She and her sister were always dressed alike and hated it so one year for Halloween my grandpa took my mom costume shopping and my grandma took my aunt. When they got home they were so excited to show each other their costumes, but when they came out of their room they were wearing the same thing.

Getting All The Credit You Don't Deserve

My ex was once scrolling through FB and said 'you look really hot in this photo'.

It wasn't me.

Problems Arise When You Both Have The Same Dislikes

My sisters are twins. Their favorite story is when one of their boyfriend's tries to show the wrong twin this weird mole on his butt cheek. Both Sisters are extremely squeamish. So boyfriend thought it was just her being grossed out.

Unfortunately, my dad walked in on him chasing the wrong twin around the kitchen with half of his butt hanging out. My dad just turned around and walked out.

That boyfriend also had a thing for eating raw vegetables like onions, garlic, and potatoes.

No, Not You. Her.

Not embarrassing, but my twin sister is dating a guy that friend zoned me.

I really liked this one guy. Super nice and funny and smart and he was pretty cute too. I confessed that I liked him and got friend zoned. It stun and he stopped talking to me after that, which totally sucked.

A month later or so my sister told me about the same guy and how they both liked it each other. I was pretty sad about it, not gonna lie, but they've been dating for almost 3 months now and they're a cute couple.

It does sting when she tells me how great they're doing and how he is always at our house, but she's happy, so it's okay.

Equally Prone To Accidents

Dad's friend is a twin. Lives in Chicago. His twin brother lives in Boston.

On the same day, both twins fell off a ladder and broke the same leg.

They Both Never Skip Squat Day

I was with my twin brother at the supermarket this one time, and judging from this story I'm guessing that obviously we look the same from the back, but not exactly the front because I'm a female.

My brother's girlfriend was shopping at the same store as us that day and comes up behind me and smacks my bottom saying "Hey love" jokingly I turn around and say it back. The look on her face made me regret what I did....

When Clearly Got The Better Genetics

Saw my identical male twin naked in high school. His wiener is much larger than mine...no homo but we even compared them once and his was definitely larger. Any other twins have this problem?

I Guess Everyone Handles Grief In Their Own Way?

My twin brother died in a car wreck and my family suggested that I should date his girlfriend because...grief, I guess?

REAL F-CKIN' AWKWARD, MOM

The Ultimate Twin-Up!

This story is so prime and I'm so excited to tell it.

I used to do musicals. Like singing dancing musicals.

My brother came to a performance and was at the greeting line afterwards. He goes up to the lead actress in the show as says "great job, congrats, what a show" to which she responds "oh I wasn't in the show actually it was my twin sister. But you were fantastic" To which my twin brother says "I wasn't in the show either"

And that's when the actual lead actress and I walk up wondering why they both look so damn confused.

I've been laughing about it for years

We're all well aware of the weird, horrible, predatory things men do when attracted to women. But what about when women are the culprits?

We've all heard how parenting is a full-time job. So it's not surprising to learn that parents have discovered plenty of quirks and methods to make things just a little bit more efficient during that eternal slog.

Stupid is as stupid does. And it’s pretty obvious when some poor, misinformed, potentially ignorant soul needs to be put in their place. Luckily, there are a lot of witty ways to do just that. We love a good euphemism.

Wanna know the best way to call out stupidity when you see it? Stay tuned.

U/lientubay asked: What's the best euphemism for telling people that they're stupid?

​Get a load of these sick burns. I swear, the people of Reddit are harsh.

Call outs are a universal language.

In Russian we have "intelligent thoughts have always followed him, but he was faster".

Humphr1es

We have something similar in German: "Intelligence is chasing you, but you are faster."

Be your own Easter Bunny.​

You could hide your own Easter eggs.

Bdiz78

The great Harvey Korman had some Alzheimer's @ 2005, and he still went on a talk show. They asked him how he was doing and he said he was OK. "Now I can hide my own Easter eggs." RIP.

Gas-Blaster

That’s cold.​

“At this point, you can only impress me."

Roman_Suicide_Note

This reminds me of something I saw in a show recently. One character said "Would you think less of me if ____." The other character said "I could never think less of you."

Catty_wampus

​I lol’d.

I think I saw this one here previously "You aren't the biggest idiot in the world but you better hope they don't die".

Soalindie

Once told this to my brother, his immediate response was "hey, please don't die".

It takes a very intelligent person to properly call out a dumb person. Weird how that works, huh?​

When the bears are smarter than the tourists.​

Now I know what Douglas Adams was talking about.

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."

BerenTheBold

As the park rangers in Yellowstone say- making a bear-proof trash can is very difficult due to the considerable overlap between the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.

Lahmmom

​That’s a gross mental image.

In Greece we say "when it was raining brains, you had an umbrella".

GSavvage

In German we ask God for help. "God, let there be raining brains" this sounds so weird but idk how to express it better lol.

Edit: In German it's "Gott, lass Hirn regnen".

It’s probably a bad sign when your lawyer calls you dumb.

Lawyer to client who shared detailed attorney-client privileged strategy memorandum with a whole bunch of people, including an adverse party:

Client: "Is there anything you can do to fix this?"

Attorney: "No, you've pretty much waived the privilege and now they know everything."

Client: "Is there anyway to put a positive spin on this?"

Attorney: "Well, I suppose the judge might buy that this proves that you lack the mental capacity to form specific intent."

Malibulobo

These next ones are just plain cold, but probably very much deserved.​

Meanness from a Canadian is probably well-earned.

Ahh Terry, having you around is like losing three good men.

StrykerSeven

Oof, that’s harsh.

He's so far behind he thinks he's first.

Perstn

I had a keychain as a kid that said, "She who laughs last thinks slowest.”

KatieSedai

Those are some gross socks.

Once heard someone say "Well he's about as sharp as a sock full of soup".

Angrypunishment

"Sharp as a marshmallow" was one that went around my friend circle.

Rubywolf27

In the words of the great prophets Smash Mouth, “I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed”. That self-burn is perhaps one of the most classic euphemisms. And I just almost misspelled “euphemism”. So I can definitely relate to that lyric.

A good way to exercise your brain? Keep thinking of creative ways to insult people. Trust me, it works like a charm
