RE: Huggies

Dear Sir or Madam:

I recently had the chance to see the DVD of the Farrelly Brothers comedy STUCK ON YOU (not so great a movie, but it gave me an idea, so hey) where two Siamese twins were joined at the hip. What I kept thinking about the entire time was, hey, how did they wear diapers when they were babies? I mean, it was hard enough for me to change my son while he was squirming around WITHOUT the added problem of another baby stuck to him (knock on wood).

It seems a shame there are not specific items just for Siamese twins, with them having to sew their own clothes and all, kind of like that Simpson’s episode when Ned Flanders opened a shop with stuff for left-handed people? While his idea didn’t pan out, (by the way, you have to see that one, it was great) here’s one that would –- diapers for Siamese twins. Follow me here -– these are extra wide diapers with three leg holes instead of two. Basically you put an extra hole where the “crotch” is in a regular diaper. You just shove the babies’ leg(s) in there, fasten it around the sides like a normal diaper, and viola! I can provide you a drawing if you want, just let me know. They would sell like hotcakes. At first I thought you could call them “Tri-pers”, but that sounds stupid. I’ll let your marketing people do some of the work on that one!!

I come up with great ideas like this all day long, just contact me if you want more, I could be an invaluable resource as I have plenty of money and only want to see happy parents EVERYWHERE!

P.S. My wife just told me it’s “conjoined”. Who knew?
