This Most Unusual Conjoined twins Will Leave You Stunned.

Growing up with a person of almost the same age as yours is so much fun. Many a times, that place in our lives is filled with our siblings. Being of almost the same age, we become best friends with them and the time flies by. Sometimes jealousy and at times love that's what the whole relationship is all about. But then, suddenly we grow up and our paths get parted away. This was certainly not true for Daisy and Violet Hilton. They were the sweetest conjoined twins joined to each other for life and were born to an unmarried barmaid.

The two sisters had their bodies joined by their hips and buttocks and shared common blood circulation, but no major organs. They were bold, beautiful and never considered their unusual bodies as their weakness. They were later adopted by Mary Hilton. Their mother started allowing the regular people at the bar to peek at her daughters conjoined flesh at a good price.

They majorly worked as entertainers and even performed a tap dance number with Bob Hope in 1926. They were also starred in the movies Freaks and Chained for Life. Side Show, a musical based on the lives of Hilton sisters, was recently promoted at the Kennedy Center.
