Fun with "Travoltifying" (D-FW home game)

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
John Travolta’s mangling of singer Idina Menzel’s name during Sunday’s Oscar ceremony already has a slate.com widget in which you can “Travoltify” your moniker.

For the record, he introduced her as “Adele Dazeem” -- or something like that -- before she performed the eventual Oscar-winning “Let It Go” from the animated film Frozen. My Travoltified name would be “Eli Black” when put through the slate.com spin cycle. But what fun is that? I’d rather that Travolta call me Ernst Bowwow. We can all be dreamers.

Uncle Barky now will get on with his own very special Travoltifying of some of D-FW’s better-known TV news personalities. And one never knows. Sometimes a new ID is required when moving to another market. So you’re welcome, one and all.
