Week 38: Pageant of the Transmundane

Welcome to the dollhouse you lords and ladies of transmundanity. We are just a few months away from the annual best of the best of Transmundanity, and every week we end up with new oddities and events to add to the fire.

Now there have been quite a few things that caught my eye this week, but a particular entrant has been doing what all good competitors do... getting their weirdness out there for all to see. You see, Maven has been quite aggressive in pursuing her Triple Crown (which I like), and this week, she has finally achieved that dream. She's been on the cusp quite a few times, but this week, she got it by opening up her back catalog, so to speak.

You see, she posted a link to a rather personal tale about when she was a lass and her mother needed to use a certain disposable piece of female-related technology for the first time, and painful hilarity ensued.

So in honor of you embarassing a family member with a bawdy anecdote, well, Maven, you've finally put that third jeweled Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award on your mantle, and given the factors of the story, well, this is the most appropriate picture I could find for it. Seriously, this is the best I got for it.

And here is your weekly badge:

And the Triple Crown award:

Now we have a definite run on who is going to get to #4 first as we now have three triple crown winners and another few entrants who could have one soon. Huzzah!

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





I'd like to take a moment and thank these "people" or concepts which made my attaining the oh-so-coveted Triple Crown possible:

1. My mom's vagina
2. Aunt Flo
3. Karma
4. Murphy (of Murphy's Law)
5. The makers of Tampax SUPER-DEE-DUPER tampons.

More people should thank their mother's vagina in acceptance speeches at Award ceremonies... that would make them Oscars and Emmys a lot more entertaining and emotionally honest.

Mr. Fabulous said...

What? I now share the record with not one, but two other people?

Who is the other three-timer? I must have missed a post.

I KNEW this would happen if I went back to work. I've lost my edge!


MC said...

Becca at No Smoking in the Skull Cave is the third winner you seek.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Sigh...perhaps I have lost a step.

Can't be the fastest gun in the west forever...

Just be careful not to let a little bastard shoot you in the ass when your back is turned Waco Kid.
