Angelina’s Right Leg is Meme, Twitter Feed

Sunday night's Academy Awards will be remembered as the night Angelina Jolie's leg became a star of its own. Less than 24 hours after the ceremony, Angie's right gam is all the rage.

For those who missed the Billy Crystal-hosted event, Jolie caused a ruckus by wearing a black dress with a thigh-high slit. Her right leg was on display whenever she walked or posed (which was often -- just check out this collection of photos from BuzzFeed).

The leg's big moment came when Jolie presented for best adapted screenplay. Angelina stuck out her leg in a flaunty pose. The move was then mocked by writer Jim Rash who, along with Alexander Payne and Nat Faxon, won an Oscar for his work on "The Descendants."

But Rash's joke was just the beginning. Angelina's right leg is now the meme that won't die. Its been digitally edited onto the Statue of Liberty, and into scenes that include The Last Supper, Darth Vader, Betty White, Abbey Road, Jeremy Lin, and, by the time you read this, about a million other things. Check out this collection of leg-bombing photos from Pinterest. We're still waiting for the one with the lamp from "A Christmas Story."

Fake photos are cool and everything, but as anybody who spends way too much time on the Internet can tell you, you're nobody until you have your own Twitter feed. Angelina's right leg has one and it already has more than 20,000 followers. A sample tweet: "Left leg and I talked -- everything's cool. Next Oscars, she gets the slit."
