    Perhaps the twins aren't related.

    perhaps facebook is retarded and you shouldnt take it so seriously.

    start a facebook group along the lines of "if 1000 people join this group they will get OCUKED" and i bet people join it i swear there all morons

    One could have travelled around the world many times, going forward in time zones every time.

    I think them not being related is a bit more feasible tho :)

    The answer is this:

    The are both twenty. You spelt it wrong in the riddle.

    "one is twenty, the other is twenty too"

    They were born in a place called March in the month of April.

    "and one married the other"

    One of them became a vicar and married the other to his partner.

    what is it with people joining all these crappy groups and then sending me invites poster a few up says "just a bit of fun" - pressing the accept button isn't much fun is it. and it annoys the heck out of me.

    wish I could drop the invites all together
