Week 10: Pageant of the Transmundane

Welcome to the Dollhouse... err, rather welcome to Charleston, South Carolina. I don't know how we got here, but then again, 16 Mike's Hard Lemonades will do that to you... well, that and allow you to water lawns up and down the Eastern Seaboard, but that is another story (and another set of lawsuits).

Anyway, before I pass out or throw up, it seems like as good a time as any to present this esteemed blogs second most prestigious award(after all, the annual awards are better, would you not agree?)

Once again we look to Mattress Police to take us home this week for pure comedic gold. This week, he took real user reviews of the Robin Williams-Mandy Moore-John Krasinski vehicle License to Wed (a vehicle which I believe I saw burning at the side of the highway a few miles back) from the IMDB and used them to diagnosis the mental problems of the writers in a piece he called Rave Reviews.

And reflecting on the theme of insanity, well, it seemed fitting to include a picture of a rather disturbed Homer Simpson, looking rather transmundane himself. I believe that what we are seeing here is a first person perspective of America's favorite father about to strangle you. Am I sending a hidden message or is the alcohol just making me paranoid? You decide.

Congrats Diesel on another Transmundanity win.

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.
