It's Okay Adele Dazeem, Dick Poop Is Here Now
If you're wondering why the strange name is trending on Twitter, allow us to explain…
This year's Oscar nominations have provided the internet with hours of amusement this afternoon, as Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs made an unfortunate, yet hilarious, slip of the tongue.
Standing alongside Chris Pine, Cheryl referred to cinematographer Dick Pope, as "Dick Poop" when it came to announcing his name earlier today.
Cheryl quickly corrected herself, with Chris somehow not bursting out laughing as she then struggled to remain poised as she continued the nominations.
And, just like with John Travolta's infamous 'Adele Dazeem' gaffe, no one has let this go by unnoticed...!
Dick Poop is the new Adele Dazeem.

I'd make a joke about Dick Poop, but you can't top Dick Poop.

And for Richard Pope, today is the day he inevitably relives the worst four years of his high-school life. #DickPoop

Best thing about Dick Poop is all the complicated names she says beforehand with reasonable accuracy...
