The big story of the 2012 Oscars turned out not to be Sacha Baron Cohen dumping ashes all over Ryan Seacrest, but instead the protruding leg of Angelina which has transformed into the Internet sensation known as 'Angelina Jolie'ing.' All night Jolie was showing off her right leg, which looked a little awkward and strained while presenting an award.

True to form, the Internet took this pop culture oddity and made it a meme. Angelina Jolie'ing is still in its toddler phase, meaning it's still pretty hilarious and not at all annoying...yet. Everyone is showing off a bit of leg, even Darth Maul and Darth Vader.

The Angelina Jolie'ing meme will continue to travel across blogs and websites until another celebrity does something of similar nature and the whole process starts over again. Stats for Celeb Leg Memes Trending: Older & Popular
