The Name Game

This past week at the 86th Academy Awards (also sometimes known as the Oscars™), celebrity presenter John Travolta made a small mistake, mispronouncing Broadway singer Idina Menzel's name as Adele Dazeem

I don't see what all the hubbub's about. It seems like an easy mistake to make-- heck, both names are equally meaningless to me (sorry, Ms. Menzel). Hey, don't act like you ever heard of her before last week either! 

Of course Travolta's flub instantly lit up the interwebs in a massive storm of savage mockery. Never ones to sit out a fad, the staff here at Bob Canada's BlogWorld pulled an all-nighter (OK, so we did it on our lunch hour) and jumped on the Travolta-shaming bandwagon. We present to you:

16 Other Ways To Mispronounce Idina Menzel:

• Ichthyology Mendelbaum

• Imogene Coca

• Industrial Melanism

• Ipanema Girlfrom

• Imperial Stormtrooper

• Iconoclast Mengele

• Englebert Humperdinck

• Imperious Rex

• Irene Ryan

• Inchon Menstrualcycle

• Rufus T. Firefly

• Itinerary J. Footmasseuse

• Denzel Ishington

• Impasse Obstructionary

• Incubus Hammurabi

• Izzard Golightly
