Week 32: Pageant of the Transmundane

Salutations from Waterloo, Iowa. I don't know why we are here, but it is that time of the week, and what a full week it was, full of ghetto pools, insane pepper shakers and other things which boggled my mind. But they didn't manage to win the big prize this week.

No, to find a winner, we have to venture into Free Country, USA, the home of Jess and Apropos of Something. Jess took on the Jones Holiday Soda Pack with a group of friends. Now some of you out there who may not be familiar with this particular product are probably wondering why this is such a big deal... well, the carbonated confections that they consumed are: Turkey and Gravy, Green Pea, Sweet Potato Casserole, Dinner Rolls with Butter and Antacid. And as evidence that he completed the dirty deed, he has rated the various fluids on a scale from 1 (Barely Disgusting) to 5 (Oh God, I am going to puke). Bonus points for guessing which one of those five concoctions got a 5.

So to both honor and memorialize Jess's brave sacrifice(because I can't believe his tongue or stomach survived this battle), I am awarding him the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this week, shaped into an ancient Thanksgiving celebration.

Congratulations Jess on winning this award for your second time.

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, wow...thanks! They say art is all about sacrifice, but this is the last time I sacrifice my stomach for it. ;)

Mr. Fabulous said...

Ah, a fine choice. We all feel Jess' pain!

Diesel said...

Jess' blog is fantastic. I've got to figure out how to get me one of them transgender awards.

MC said...

Jess: now we have quite a pack for the second transmundane triple crown.

Mr. Fab: And if you've read this blog long(which I know you have), the consumption of odd food items and the results are good candidate for victory in this category of battle.

Diesel: Well, keep up the good work in your department and you may end up with the hardware.

Merry Christmas, all.

Well, I wouldn't say they were smiling either.

And Merry Christmas to you Lucien and you all.
