Loose Change: Two times twelve

The following is purely fictional and meant for entertainment purposes only. By entertainment, we mean we hope you laugh while reading this, while framing this, or while burning this. Any similarities between this and actual events is strictly coincidental and frankly, dumb luck. Remember to remind your lawyer about the made-up part, OK?

I know what you're thinking: It's been seven freaking years and I still can't tell which one is Daniel Sedin and which one is Herbert, or Franklin, or whatever the other one's name is.

Yes, they're identical twins, but not exactly identical (which kind of contradicts the first part of that statement now that I think about it). But if you're looking for guaranteed ways to tell the brother Heckyl from the brother Jeckyl, we may have a few helpful hints for you. Twelve, in factÂ…
