Week 14: Pageant of the Transmundane

Well, I the gang over here at Culture Kills has a distinct honor tonight (OK, OK, it is just l'il ole me over here, but it looks sad just saying that). You see, this week's winner was a previous winner so we have our first double winner. WOOHOO!

So who is this lucky winner and what did they find or do this week to get themselves another taste of the sweet, sweet glory that is the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award? Why they did a little dancing is all.

You see, Karl over at Secondhand Tryptophan literally stole this award out of another blogger's hand this week by really raising the ante. His surreal video of him dancing away to Jessie's Girl was a production that is both haunting and humorous. Like the Kramer, I can't look away.

So in honor of this achievement, this Dancing Homer Prize shall be yours. Enjoy it in good health. *starts the tape with Baby Elephant Walk*

Dancing Homer

So I congratulate Karl on breaking some new ground here. Huzzah! I think it calls for another dance.

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.

I think Karl is absolutely worthy of this honor being bestowed upon him

My cornea are still recovering from watching the video...

Karl said...

Woo hoo! I am again honored and horrified to win this glorious prize. It's going up on the mantle, next to my other Transmundane award and my Grade 6 spelling bee champion award. (See? I can speak Canadian, eh, I almost said 6th grade instead of Grade 6.)

MC said...

Dutchy: And of course, this opens the door for other people to win it twice or more now too. ;)

Karl: You can be honored and horrified at the same time... it is sort of like a roast really. And yes, it is Grade 6, because we are really into the building of roads and such here.

Damn it! The only thing that has kept me going these last few months is the hope, nay, the dream that I would be the first repeat winner.

There is only one thing to do. Drive down to Karl's town, break into his house, bludgeon him to death with his award, and take it back with me, the blogger to whom it rightfully belongs.

I better leave now if I'm gonna make it back for dinner...

MC said...

Run Karl Run.

Of course, my solution would have been do some more transmundane stuff and try for either the two in a row or hattrick.

Mel said...

You guys are killing me here (Mr. Fabulous, don't take that as a suggestion, please). ;)
Congrats, Karl!
I am too boring and blah to win any such award, but if I did, I would totally want to bludgeon someone in order to win it twice.

snackiepoo said...

Is this Karl's second???? Ahhh, I think having one is enough for me if it means that I'd ever ever ever have to do that vidoe...but I keep that video link for every moment that I am feeling down, hahahaha.

Karl - try out for "so you think you can dance"


MC said...

Mel: You could win it... I've read your stuff. You are demented enough to pull it off.

Snackie: Come on... you don't think a certain post you made last weekend didn't catch my eye for the award... see, if people only knew what the short list for the award was like. Some weeks are jammed packed... of course, I would never release such a thing.

snackiepoo said...

LMAO - did it have something to do with fellatio?


Cause yanno, I can repost it and become a two time winner...fucking Karl and his dancing ;0

Mr. Fabulous said...

Well, I see what you are saying about trying harder, but doesn't that require a lot more effort than just sitting around hoping you will give it to me?

Plus...should you really be encouraging me to get further out on that ledge?

Oh well. At least I was your first. They can't take that away from me. You always remember your first, right?

Oh, and you won't be hearing from Karl anymore.

MC said...

snackie: Well, since I already encountered that entry and it didn't win, it would no longer be eligible, even in a reprint.

Mr. Fab: I can and will encourage you to go further out on that ledge dammit. And yes, you always remember your first.

Karl said...

Jealousy, people. It's not pretty.

MC said...

There is a lot of sun to go around, their really is.
