Week 22: Pageant of the Transmundane

I stumbled up The Sneeze this week, and I was mightily impressed by what I saw... especially in one category - Steve, Don't Eat It.

Steve's consumed a lot of things that honestly put him into a class by himself. Whether it is tackling a 13-year old box of Urkel-o's, trying to make prison wine or sampling some of his wife's breast milk, he seems to have a fearlessness about him that is intriguing. He would be a shoe-in for any fraternity out there... or to win Fear Factor for that matter

Of course, there had to be an item that just... well, just made me up and gag really. And the most wretch-inducing thing I saw in this menagerie of unusual and evil culinary treats was a little product called Cuitlacoche, which is basically corn that has been infected by a certain strain of black fungus and then canned in its various forms of decay. Of course, he goes through the process of eating it in a very detailed way.

For disgusting me and taking many culinary hits for the rest of us, I award Steve and The Sneeze the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award.

Congratulations Steve.

Week 22 pageant of the transmundane

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.

It is unfortunate that it doesn't come with a complementary stomach pump. :)
