Bad Lipreading –
Just for kicks, sometimes I tell my family what I actually hear them say, because sometimes it’s just total gibberish.
That’s really not them – it’s my (lack of) hearing and my reliance on lipreading.
While I am an AMAZING lipreader, I mean, a total ninja (I won’t even make a joke about being humble here), it’s easy to mess up. It’s easy, because, I mean, LOOK AT LIPS! Look at how many variations you can get from lips moving and facial expressions and all of that.
It’s impossible to explain that to people, so anytime I see a video that really gets it, I swoon.
This series was introduced to me by kids in the Best School Ever – I laughed till I cried, so I have to share it with you:
