    Sick Why do some people talk out of the side of their mouth?

    Is there some medical explanation for this?

    I don't know exactly what you mean, but didn't Chretien have Bell's Palsy?

    I just find myself watching their lips move rather than listening to what they are saying.

    Some people talk out of both sides of their mouths at the same time. The explanation for this is that they are liars and many times corporate executives.

    It could be the result of a palsy or a stroke or some other neuromuscular disfunction. It could be the result of the two halves of the brain not coordinating. I had a New Wave friend who claimed it was the sign of dishonesty. It could be someone doing that Seinfield voice: "Hellllooooooo, la la la."

    Yes, Chretien does have Bell's palsy, which paralyses some of his facial muscles.

    Often, orthodontial problems can cause peopel to have sloping mouths too.

    I think the more important question is:

    Why do people talk out of the front of their mouth?

    Mattyboy, you can never eat too much garlic. It's dee-licious

    About talking from the side of the mouth:

    It looks mean. Like Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo
