The Queen and Prince Lip-Reading Game!

For obvious reasons, my mood hasn’t been the best lately and I think that is reflected on my entries these past few days. kennysia.com used to be known for its humourous entries. But hey, if I’m not laughing myself, how can I make everyone else laugh?
Heh. Maybe now its your turn to cheer me up!
Remember a while ago I wrote about how absurd it is that UK tabloid News of the World actually employed so-called professional lip readers to decode the Queen and Prince Charles conversation at his and Camilla Parker-Bowles’ wedding? Click on that link if you haven’t read that entry yet.
Here’s an excerpt if you’re too fucking lazy to exercise your finger and click on that link for your convenience.


How the heck can they simply decide what people are saying just by looking at a video? How do they even know they’re speaking English? For all I know, they could be conversing in Hokkien.

Hokkien Version

Well guess what?
Now, you too, can guess lip-read what exactly was said between the Queen and Prince during that royal wedding! kennysia.com proudly presents lipreader.kennysia.com

  1. It’s working now. Not sure what the first problem was (all garbled up on the last two images). Sorry for spamming you with two comments in a row.

  2. I think your script doesn’t accept quotation mark, like ” or ‘ will jam up all the fonts. Also the size of the text bar is too small 🙁 I guess we really have to use our imagination there.
    Anyhow I posted up one, hope it makes you laugh.
