It was the slit that didn’t quit. From the red carpet to the big stage and all places in between, last week’s Academy Awards had less to do with Oscar and more to do with Angelina Jolie and her exposed extremity. Her absurd pose — with the suggestive lips, hand on hip and high-cut dress — became an instant online sensation, with lots of mimicking, mocking and memes.
