Angelina Jolie’s leggy Oscar pose may be remembered long after the winners of the 84th Academy Awards are forgotten. It’s gone viral and spawned thousands of quips, not to mention some smashing photoshop mashups.

The 36-year-old actress stole the show with her red carpet strut and her striking pose on stage while she presented an award. Her black Atelier Versace gown, and protruding right leg have become an Internet sensation.

A twitter page dedicated to her leg already has more than 14,000 followers and counting. And, it’s filled with zingers. “You have to admit I’m one hell of a leg,” wrote one quipster.

Jolie obviously was having fun with the pose. Her stance on stage was deliberate and seemed to be designed to campy fun. But who could have predicted the reaction?

The real fun began as bloggers and photoshop whizzes had a field day with the image. Her leg began turning up everywhere, especially in iconic photos of famous figures, from the Statue of Liberty to the Queen of England.

The term “legbombing” has already gone viral. Check out some of the photos below:
