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 when you think of quality family time, you think of judging celebrities’ outfits together.  Also, I should note that I did not prompt or in any other way influence my four-year-old daughter’s responses to the photos.  Turns out, she is a fashion police NATURAL.  (*Sniff* I’ve never been so proud.)

ME: Looks like she had Britney Spears’ Toxic bodysuit made into a ballgown.

As you’re kicking Legos and fruit snack wrappers and sippy cups full of rotten milk out of your way en route to the couch, remember:  at least your house doesn’t look like THIS:

#1 – I think they could really use more take-out soda cups.

#2 – Some living rooms are full of dirt.  Others?  Have dirt bikes.

#3 – “Hey, could you put back — oh, never mind.”

#4 – Some people like to sleep under a cozy layer of take-out boxes.

#5 – Somebody should let the boy who plays romantic guitar music that NO girl is going to want to join him in this room.

#6 – Yet another fan of the comfy take-out-container quilt.

#7 – “Sorry, boss, can’t work today because I can’t find my home office.”

#8 – Kitchen counters are the new trashcans.

#9 – Just a few (hundred) of their favorite beauty products.

8 Signs You Have ‘Frozen’ Fatigue

A new survey by mental health professionals has revealed parents around the country are suffering from a debilitating condition called “Frozen Fatigue” — a condition that makes moms and dads feel like they are going to go ABSOLUTELY INSANE if they have to listen to the Frozen soundtrack one more freakin’ time. (Hey, I enjoyed it the first hundred times, but after that…?  I actually told my four-year-old daughter that if she didn’t start using headphones, we were going to have to use her college savings to admit Mommy into a looney bin.)  If you believe that you, too, may have fallen victim to this tragic condition, then you will want to familiarize yourself with the warning signs:
