Week 39: Pageant of the Transmundane

I don't know how I ended up standing out in the countryside of Prince Edward Island, or why I suddenly smell like a french fry, but I do know that it is once again time to give out an award at the end of a long week.

So who is it going to be this week... will we be awarding a fourth Triple Crown winner this week...?

In a word? No.

Sinister Dan over at The Reasonable Ego, a blogger I will disclose I've had a previous working relationship with in an online gaming context, has allowed his acerbic wit to shine once again, dealing with some minor issue... I think it is called religion. Many people have shown skepticism at the tenets of belief, but very few have shown such humor while doing it. It is not for everyone I admit, but I still thought it was original writing worth an award.

Alas Homer being green and angry has already been award this year, so I had to make a substitute from the episode "Homer the Heretic", and it is not available in hat form, but it still is a Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, and that is still something.

In addition to that finally crafted image above, you have also been furnished with a badge which you can use to publicize your major award.

Congrats Sinister Dan, if that is your real name(though I know it isn't you saucy one).

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.

MC - I've been meaning to ask, would you mind if I transfer my transmundanity award from flotsam/jetsam over to the new

Sinister Dan said...

I am stunned, humbled and greatful.

Now I need to go get a snack.

MC said...

Jim: They are in essence the same entity, so you can claim the award in the blog's new form yes.

Cynidan: Hopefully you snacked wisely.

Michelle said...

I just now noticed I won the award back in July 2006. Wow, thanks. :)

Do you mind if I post the award on my blog, even though it was like 7 months ago?

MC said...

I have to make you a badge, but that shouldn't be a problem(as they are designed for that use in mind).
