Week 19: Pageant of the Transmundane

Now, I am not going to lie to you. This week's winner may make you feel a little queasy, and well, what I am giving you all is fair warning. That's all I can do really, because ever since I saw it... well, let's just say it really upped the ante. Do not eat or drink 30 minutes before or after reading this week's winner, because dear god.

You see, the proprietor of Thought Nuggets sent in some samples early in the contest, and well, one of the entries just sort of stuck with me, as I am sure the actual event stuck with(and to) the person involved.

To put it mildly, it is a bad sex story. Of course, this isn't a small papercut to your finger bad. No, this is bad way up on the scale. I mean horrific. Like "burning multicar accident in the middle of a snowstorm and in the trunk of one of burning wrecks is a nuclear bomb set to go off in 2 minutes" bad. Now, rereading that description, it does seem to be a particularly apt analogy for the whole situation. We probably all have an embarrassing story or three in our past, but I think this one takes the cake... and none of us would want that cake back after this story.

I'm scarred for life... but in a good way. It is an old yarn, but it was new to me as I would remember reading that story before. Therefore, in light of both my disgust and awe of that story, I award Thought Nuggets the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award.

Homer Eats some tasty fish

Congratulations, and I see you vying for a few more in the future.


The relevant coding is available here.

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 campybeaver@gmail.com 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 warned you that you probably wouldn't want to eat after reading it.

Thanks so much, it's an honor just being read, but I have to say satisfying to win, even for something I didn't write myself, but merely linked to:)

Grassy-ass!

BlogMad Hit! Maveny Goodness!

Mr. Fab: Your first comment really got me laughing.

Maven: There was a post I found independent of your suggestions that almost made the cut, but in weighing the two competing posts, well, sicker won out.
