A 30-year-old plumber in England gave birth to his twin last week -- sort of, not really -- when a lumpy growth forced its way out of his abdomen like some kind of hideous alien. Doctors later confirmed that the lump was the leftovers of an embryonic parasitic twin that was absorbed into the man’s body at birth and stayed in his stomach for 30 years before making its dramatic exit. “I feel absolutely fine now but it has not sunk in yet that I could have had a twin brother,” said Gavin Hyatt. “I have him in a jar at home and I call him little Gav. I haven’t told many people. I feel like a bit of a freak.” (The Sun)
