Identical twins say the same thing at the same time

Identical twins Bridgette and Paula Powers think of themselves as a single person.

Frank Robson profiled them for the Sydney Morning Herald:

Before we meet, I phone identical twins Paula and Bridgette Powers at the Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue refuge on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. The woman who answers doesn't offer a name, so I ask if I'm speaking to Paula or Bridgette. "Yes," says the woman, waiting for me to continue.

It's only when we get together that the aptness of that response sinks in. Because although the twins – or "twinnies" as they prefer – are clearly two people, they give the eerie impression of being completely interchangeable.
