Conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel keep City Pages afloat

We never thought a random update post on 18-year-old Minnesota conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel would be such a big hit on CP Blotter, but apparently people can't get enough of these awesome young ladies. The replaying of their most recent TLC documentary nearly every week doesn't hurt us either.

We'd like to call this post our "Most Unexpected Hit Generator of 2008".

But the post, detailing the article featuring the Hensels in Newsweek, gave some background on how the girls continue to grow and mature into young ladies while living a life literally connected to one another. 


The post still gets regular hits every single week and is often in our top posts on slower days. Who would think a post from nearly 10 months ago would have such staying power?

Abby and Brittany are now 18-years-old and just started their first year at Bethel University in St. Paul. 

Thank you Abby and Brittany for both inspiring us with your story and keeping CP in business.
