I recently realized that timelines, if they contain pictures, count as comics.

When someone talks, their mouth goes through many different shapes, some more expressive then others. But in a comic, you can choose the one mouth shape that you find MOST expressive, and have it say the whole word balloon! And it doesn't even look odd!

I couldn't find a good place for these things, so I made a new thread. Anyone else?

You also see comics where characters mouths aren't even close to being open when they're supposed to be speaking. Again, we don't even find this odd in the least.

They can even eat, or drink through a straw while they talk.

Or talk in a vacuum.

I was going to try to come up with more ludicrous examples, but I think if you show their lips zippered shut or something else, and still show them talking, confusion will arise, unless the speech is monologish and interpretable as mere thought.

Well, I think we've covered the talking-with-mouth-full aspect. Just a few more words from Frank here.

See, it can be dangerous... for a moment I thought maybe it was a talking cinderblock.

A stitched mouth example is the scarecrow in Winds of Winter, an antarctic press release written by Gianluca Pierrda.
