Oil dipstick question...

If the oil dipstick is warped (twisted around and around, like a giant curly fry) does this mean that the engine overheated at some point? Maybe just got close? I'm assuming it's warped because all other dipsticks that I've seen are perfectly straight, something has got to be wrong. What is it???
