Original Siamese Twins Eng And Chang Bunker

Death Cast with Autopsy Stitches

Have you ever considered or wondered where the term Siamese Twins came from? I can’t say I had ever given it a thought. It was just one of those terms that I took to be descriptive but with no inherent meaning. Until recently when I stumbled on the above picture.

Although conjoined twins have existed as a rare anomaly throughout history, their colloquial term came about in the 1830s when Eng and Chang, brothers from Siam (present day Thailand) toured the United States in a travelling curiosity show. They were billed as “The Siamese Twins” and the term stuck, being applied to any conjoined twins regardless of their ethnicity or birthplace, thereafter.

Eng and Chang were born in Siam to half Chinese parents, so ironically were known in Siam as “The Chinese Twins”. Their survival of birth is remarkable given it occurred in a village in South East Asia in 1811. But survive they did, as did their mother, although there is no mention of her sex life after the fact.

In 1829 a British Merchant named Robert Hunter saw them and paid their parents to contract them to a curiosity tour. They were a popular exhibit, and soon took over their own management. In 1839 they decided to purchase land in North Carolina, USA and become farmers. They took on the surname Bunker, purchased thirty slaves and became naturalised American Citizens. They retired from circus life save for a brief stint after the civil war.

I have this awkward image of the Bunker slaves turning up to local slave picnics and other slaves making fun of them because of their owners. I fear the other slave children wouldn’t have played with the Bunker slave children. Bigotry has many faces and children can be particularly cruel.

In 1843 the Bunkers married the Yates sisters, Adelaide and Sarah. They had a four person bed and the sisters had 22 children between them. Sorry, no mention of whether any wife swapping occurred, but I can’t help but think some funky shit went on. It was the South after all.

Eventually the sisters’ relationship became such that they could not live together anymore, so two separate households were established and the brothers alternated three days about at each house. I apologise again, but there is no mention of any sandwich activity in the official biographies.

In 1874 Eng awoke to find Chang had died in his sleep and summonsed a doctor to perform an emergency separation. However, the doctor arrived too late. A shared blood supply meant that Eng quickly succumb to poisoning, lasting only three hours longer than his brother.

The twins were joined by cartilage between their sternums, soft tissue and a vascular bundle directly between their livers. Their livers were preserved and are on display, the vascular connection left intact. Today their separation would be relatively routine.

Below are some pictures of the original Siamese Twins.

      1. Weegs” are just what you would call trolls, a few idiots who think they are funny by saying the stupidest and most obvious to answer stuff. The website I mentioned earlier has?the biggest?family I’ve ever seen, a minimum of 23 Weegs (Cool_Weeg, Weeg Mexican, Weeg?Doctor, Party Weeg, Weeg?brother, Weeg sister Ect.

        1. Good idea. I don?t think any of these fine people want spam in these threads anyway. Before stopping i?m going to make up a word 🙂

          It?s called a noog. Its a fat ugly hillbilly bitch who has a drinking problem and annoys people o,o

          My e-m-a-i-l is provided if you ever wish to talk 🙂

          1. These provocations will get you no where buddy. If you expect the slightest bit of respect from the community you have to show it as well.

            If you don’t like a certain member either respectfully engage in a constructive conversation to expose your views or become taciturn. Antagonizing others in the hopes of attracting attention is as well what you’re doing, so you’re not that different from the person you are criticizing.

          1. Lmao Alicatt I’m too intoxicated for that…just trying to make this shitty day fun….looks like I need to party with ming a ling….kings of the dingaling!!….haha

          2. Lmao my “rhymes”here were gay hun….I do way better sober..lolz….umm just finished a bottle of vodka and like 2 strawberitas bout to start on the razberitas…nom nom…

  1. Thank you for yet another intriguing post McT!!…I love reading about all these oddities!!…kinda like the circus has come to bg minus the fucking clowns…oh wait..we have a bunch of those posing as commenters here already….YAY…the circus is here!!!

          1. Not mad..just tired of dealing with fuckheads like you all day…you are the unfortunate getting all my wrath…….sorry weeg…..and no nut for me but in sure you’d make a GREAT cum bucket… 🙂

          1. Don’t trip ex..I’m used to these fucks already….sad thing is I liked the weeg at first..even defended it’s stay here some posts back…..BUT I’m cool now…can’t wait wait for it to be gone….I give it a month or a lil more then it will disappear like ALL the rest of them….night ex!! <3

      1. thought it was done.. I guess not. unlike ladywicked I try to use my brain a little before I post instead of saying the same shit everytime like she does. You started to harass me by calling me a ‘weeg’ which I find completely retarded and now after being verbal’d you now want to hide behind your little friends on here that will defend you… not sure why I’m wasting my time on you but the shit you say shouldn’t go unopposed especially since i’ve been an active user on this site for a long time and have never told a new poster off or been rude to them for no reason

        holy big essay…

        1. Sigh..okay I’m going to say this one last time wg..I call you a weeg because your FUCKING avatar picture is of a goddamn weeg..how mentally inept do you have to fucking be to not understand that…..I don’t give a fuck who or what you’re in real life…you mean absolutely nothing to me..but here on the site I go off of your picture and THAT dear person is of a weeg…now that we’ve caused enough disruption to this post..I will gladly leave you and your comments alone….I ask of the same of you…we obviously do not have a common so fuck off and I’ll do the same.. 😉

  2. I guess Siamese twins don’t have “normal” sex lives. Imagine twin males on one girl…or twin girls on one male. What if they share one sex organ and two brains? Do they cum at the same time? And if they have separate sex organs do they fight over territory? And what about masterbation…fuck it, I’m getting a headache just thinking about it.

  3. Now that I’ve been drinking and re looking at the pictures does anyone else notice the likeness of their faces with a baboon or a derp??..what the fuck??…meh…where’s my beers…time to keep drinking till chink and Chung up there look like they’re separate at long last…..

        1. They didn’t separate when I drank…they multiplied! Now Eng and Chang and Ping and Pong and Ting and Tong and Ding and Dong are keeping me in a corner and mind fucking me! (Someone get the lube, my eyehole is sore)

  4. Great post! I’ve heard about Eng and Chang before. The article I read stated when they had conjugal visits with their respective wives, they hung a sheet between the brothers. Wouldn’t make for much privacy for their wives but the brothers weren’t used to having any their entire lives anyway.

    “It was the South after all.” Haha, I’ve lived all over the United States, the South doesn’t have exclusive rights on “funky shit” ! 😉

  5. I`d Surmise At Least Two Female `bunker` Munkeys Went For Several Rides On The Siamese Singapore Sling Swing! W/Chang N Eng…..
    So There Has To Be A Few Darkies In Th Hood Who Resemble Tiger Woodz

  6. 22 kids, eh? That’s a lot of flip flops! The noise must have made Skanky Blonde sound like a morgue.

    I’m suddenly reminded of Anna and the King of Siam along with his 64 flip flop wearing children.

    The horror…

  7. There is a great comedy panel show here in the UK called QI (Quite Interesting) which featured Eng and Chang briefly a while back .
    One of them got into an altercation whilst drinking which started a brawl with a fellow drinker which then led to a court appearance for the twins ….. however…….
    because sentencing either Eng or Chang (can’t remember which one was on trial) to a custodial sentence would mean his twin would also have to be sentenced he was let off !
