The Triplets

The triplets, Manfred, Milton and Sue were identical, except that Manfred had a cowlick that swept to the left, whereas, Milton’s swept right. Oh yea, Sue wasn’t identical either; she had no cowlick.

  2. This is cute! I guess they all look kind of alike, but they are still unique individuals :)

  3. Only their mother could tell them apart!
    At least they have the cowlicks (or not) Did you read about the woman in Asia who shaved numbers into their hair?

  13. Hopefully the,,, ummmm now we're on the fourth, so the third joke doesn't work anymore, time's a charm and the comment will take. Stupid wordpress. Stupid blogger. Stupid comment forms.) This is hilarious. I love that Sue isn't identical because she doesn't have a cowlick.
