A fellow and his wife living in Houston, Texas, where the people are
all patriots, were blessed with the birth of twins, two identical
girls. These twins were born on the 4th of July, and the father,
being patriotic, said to his wife, “We will name them Liberty and
Justice, after the pledge of alligence”.
His wife said, “Are you nuts? You can’t have girls going through
life with names like Liberty and Justice. We are going to name
them regular girl’s names like Mary or Jane”.
Well, the argument went on for about a month, when a compro- mise
was reached. They would each name one of the girls. The man chose
Liberty and the wife picked Elizabeth.
As the girls grew, they were so identical, they kept pulling tricks
on people who couldn’t tell them apart.
Finally, when they were about 18, a young man took interest in
them. He would take one out on a date but he was never sure which
one he was with.
He decided he would marry at least one of them, but he wasn’t sure
which one he would marry.
He went to the girls father and explained his quandry.
“I love your daughters and want to marry one of them, but I can’t
tell them apart, so I will leave it up to you…
Give me Liberty or give me Beth.”
