Thanks to the genius of BadLipReading, we now know that Texas Gov. Rick Perry is bored by famine, supports getting goats for our computer industry, and wants to save a pretzel for the gas jets.

BadLipReading is a website and YouTube channel that interprets mostly music videos with inaccurate lip-reading, replaces the background tracks, and re-stylizes them entirely. For instance, a hardcore Michael Buble wants to shoot a Russian unicorn. Obama received similar treatment earlier this month.*
