Week 29: Pageant of the Transmundane

We have a new king, and tonight's his coronation.

When I started this award 29 weeks ago, little did I know that before week 30, someone would have the talents to win it 3 times. Of course, there are a few suspects it could be, but if anyone has seen the kind of crazy crap that goes on down in Florida, well, the new lord and master of this contest should not come as any surprise.

By now you have probably gathered that I am talking about Pointless Drivel. So what did he do now?

Well, he only took a few elements (a banana, a tub of yogurt and a set of felt antlers), and turned it into shameless comedy gold. He really upped the ante this week, and I had to give him the award. My wording after watching it was "Dammit! Fab won it again!" but I do have to admire the way he puts himself out there.

And what better way to reward a king but with the biggest ape of them all... a King Homer if you will, all noir-like.

Homer as King Kong

And that award naturally comes with a badge for the week...

week 29 Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award

...and in honor of this unprecedented level of achievement in the field of transmundanity, well, it is only fitting that Brad takes home an additional accolade. Therefore I have created a "Transmundanity Triple Crown" Award. Congrats on reaching a new pinnacle in strange behavior and just sheer oddness, so you are again a pioneer in this field and the hardware reflects that.

The Homer Simpson Transmundanity Triple Crown

Of course, on rare occasions I also make an honorable mention, and this is one of those times. Before Brad had made a rather public spectacle of himself and wowed this awards committee, I had received an email entry from Matt Finarelli at Deglazed with a story about a new kind of hunting ammo that is essentially a hard-packed herb and spice buckshot that seasons your game/fowl as you cook it. It has to be seen to be believed.

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.

Oh my...I don't know what to say.

Now that I have achieved all that I set out to do at the tender age of 44, I guess there is nothing to do but enter into that murder/suicide pact that David Cassidy and have always talked about.

You'll make sure I am buried with my awards, won't you?

Is it sad that, as I drifted off to sleep last night, I was thinking that Mr. Fab should get this today?

Be he oh so humble....not ;).

Yiiihaaaaaaaaaaaaa Fabby!!! LOL Well deserved!!!

Fab: Just make sure that when the police find you, you are pitching and not catching... you wouldn't want people to talk.

Hilly: I am always surprised when someone mentions they were thinking/talking about my blog-related stuff (or me) outside the context of the blog. I am not surprised you were thinking about Fab's video, because I think on some level we are deeply scarred after seeing that.

Dutchy: Of course, now that he has upped the ante so much, well, it is going to be harder for him to win it again.

Mr. Fabulous said...

So what I am hearing is...I would probably need to make a video post of the murder/suicide pact to be considered again...

MC said...

See, that's why getting an award two weeks in a row is hard, because you sort of have to blindside me with something to make it stick.

Just when you think you've seen and read it all from Mr. Fab he downs a banana. How is he going to top that? It's pretty scary to even think about.

MC said...

Well, there are other places a banana can go. *shudder*

Mr. Fabulous said...

Oh, that's very nice LOL

MC said...

Well, it is certainly one way to toss a fruit salad.

It's Me, Maven... said...

Just make sure that video'd suicide involves bananas and yogurt... I sat there, mouth agape... watching that video.

How can fabby top that?

Congrats on the triple crown!
