  • I say that when I have farted out of one side of my roast beef sandwich. j/k it means your saying one thing to one person and another thing to another person. Picture yourself only talking to the pperson on your right but you don't want to do the old cover your mouth and te persons ear.

  • Isn't it "talking out of BOTH sides of their mouth?" Meaning he is telling one person one thing and someone else something different? Saying whatever the person listening wants to hear? I'm not sure, but that is what I think.

  • Means they are feeding you bullshit. They say one thing, then say another.

  • Talking out of both sides of your mouth means you are saying opposite things to two different people. Taking opposite stances on the same subjects. Talking out of one side means just what Gigi said.
