"Robot Restaurant" Actually Run by Two Identical Couples

People are confused how a Chinese couple managed to run a busy restaurant 21 hours a day without getting tired. Turns out the restaurant is run by two couples ... both the men and women are identical twins!

Locals had nicknamed the eatery the “robot couple restaurant” as they couldn’t understand how the same couple seemed to be on duty from 6am through to 3am. However, a journalist from Today Morning Post interviewed the restaurant owner and found out the truth. It turned out that the twin brothers, 32, married a set of twin sisters from the same township three years ago and moved to Yiwu to run the restaurant together. “Many diners thought we worked too hard and are like robots, but they don’t know that we are actually four people,” said Mao Zhanghua, 32, the elder brother.

Neat story. I'd rather marry both twins, and cut my brother out of the deal, then have my two wives pretend to be one, to get away from any legal issues. Two people can pay three, especially if one gets insane overtime.

Fantastic. It was a great coincidence. A man married with a girl and his brother, that is his twin, married with a girl... Fantastic. Running a business was a good choice to them.

There's an SNL sketch with Amy Adams called "Mirror Image" that's actually about this very phenomenon: twins pretending to be the same person to get away with only doing half the work. I can't believe anybody actually tried it in real life.
