The REAL Reason John Travolta Butchered Idina Menzel’s Name

As everyone who watched the Oscars last night knows — and even everyone who DIDN’T watch the Oscars knows — John Travolta totally butchered Idina Menzel’s name when introducing the Frozen singer last night:

Yes!  “Adele Dazim!”  But I think it’s pretty obvious why John messed it up so badly — he was simply using the TODDLER pronunciation of her name.  Of course!  Heck, toddlers have a way of hilariously mangling tons of words.  Some other things John probably says, based on real-life toddler mispronunciations:

“Hey, I’m going potty!  A little private-seat would be appreciated.”  –John Travolta

“Mmmm!  Yummy pant-cakes!” –John Travolta

“Just taking a little spin in my helipopper!” –John Travolta

“To be honest, the weave is too tight around my head-fore.” –John Travolta

“I could really go for a plate of pisketti and meatballs right now. –John Travolta

 

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
