Week 13: Pageant of the Transmundane

So it is week 13 of this wonderful award, and this week I have sought enlightenment to ward off the ill-effects of the number 13.

In that very same vein, Jody over at Come on Pilgrim has discovered some strange pudding molds in the shape of Buddha, which begs the question... how much do you love Buddha. I mean, it is one thing to rub his belly, but to have a creamy soft graven image of him INSIDE your belly, well, that has got affect your karma in a serious way.

On one level, I would love to eat a religious figure, and since I am not Catholic, I haven't had a chance to do so, and now for some strange reason I want to see the Order, and I don't know why.

I could go on, but if I do, I will probably end up offending a few more religions, and I don't want to do that, so I will just eat my croissant and hand over this lovely award to Jody.

Homer and the Beer Keg

Personally I was looking for a little bit of oiled up Homer action to go with the pudding-filled Buddhas, but what can you do. Congrats Jody and keep up the great work.

The rules of this little contest: Every week I will be selecting one blog post that I have seen from the vast reaches of the blogosphere to bestow with the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award for being one of the freakiest(in a funny way) things I've seen or read during a 7 day period. It doesn't necessarily have to have been written during the week, I just had to have encountered it. That means that if you find something interesting and repost it like a movie or whatever, if I saw it at your blog first, you get the prize. Of course, creating your own content is also a very good way to win.

Now, if you see a post that you think is worthy of this illustrious prize, just drop me a line at and we'll see if we can't get your suggestion up and award-ready while giving you some credit and a link to your own blog.

Aww thanks!

I have coveted this award since its inception and I'm so pleased to have been chosen.

I'm in the process of ordering some Buddha molds, I'll let you know how the pudding turns out.

Just so you know, oily Homer is my favorite Homer....the most used phrase in this house when it comes to him is...."ohhh, nobody likes Oily Homer".

Congrats to this week's winner!

jody: you more than earned it this week.

snackie: I can still see him being pushed from Dr. Hibbard's class to the one on entrepreneurship. I certainly like oily Homer. Not in that steelmill kind of way, but eh, what can you do?

I am extrememly proud of myself that even though you spoke about eating religious figures, and in so doing gave tacit approval for me to make a classless and offensive remark, I have not done so.

Yay me!

MC said...

well, you always have tacit approval to be as tasteless as tapioca or as delicious as butterscotch pudding.
