It was everywhere last night, and people can't seem to stop talking about it. No, not Jennifer Lopez's possible nip-slip. We're talking about Angelina Jolie's right leg, sticking right out of that made-for-it slit in her gown as she posed on the red carpet and stood onstage at Sunday's 84th Annual Academy Awards.

Naturally, the "leg" has already got its own modern mouthpiece, in the form of a Twitter account.

While the leg itself may be long and lean (too lean, according to many armchair observers of last night's banal Oscars festivities), so far, @AngiesRightLeg is short on subject matter. "I'm a leg!" and "Look at this leg!!!" are about the extent of its reach.

Perhaps Angelina's leg is open to Q&A. If you could ask her leg anything...wait. Nevermind. We don't really want to know some of those answers.

UPDATE: We were remiss in not reporting that Jennifer Lopez's nipple also has a Twitter account (@JLosNipple) and the nipple seems to be trying to lure the leg into a war of words.
