Week 41: Pageant of the Transmundane

The Academy Awards have taken all my award show thunder, so there is going to be little less fanfare this week.

This week's winner came down to where I saw a certain video first. I happened to stop in at Semaj's Blog you Blog on Tuesday evening and saw something rather funny. It seems that a certain basketball player said some stuff that wasn't nice about gay people. George Takei, who came out of the closet a few years ago and has really been having fun with it, addressed the player, Tim Hardaway in a most hilarious and mocking way. It is comedy gold. I looked into it and the video was made for the Jimmy Kimmel Show, so it did have some money behind it. However you slice it, it is a winner.

For being the first blog that I saw to seize on that particular television moment, I am happy to award you this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, one depicting Homer as a member of a Star Trek spinoffs crew.

Congrats James. You've earned it.

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.

Great! I finally got one.

I’ve been trying to get a Transmundanity Award ever since I started reading your blog. Thanks a lot MC. I would also like to thank George Takei as well.

Thanks again, MC

And the funny thing is, if you would have asked me while I was away from the list of winners, I would have sworn that you had won before. It was only at the award ceremony that I realized that wasn't so.
