Week 19: Pageant of the Transmundane

I had a winner all picked out for this week, and half the write-up for the award... and then a late entry came in and stole the prize. Literally, a blog entry put up less than 4 hours ago has pulled off an upset.

This week's winner hails from the friendly shores of Ill Doctrine, after Jay Smooth asked the question: What if Bill O'Reilly was a rapper? It attacks someone I despise and it isn't a bad song, so it is a nice twofer.

And to reflect the fact that a loud mouth talk show host was the subject of this week's winner's work, I thought it would be more than appropriate to find a file photo of when Homer Simpson had a short lived current affairs show on television. What more fitting way to celebrate the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this week.

Congratulations Jay Smooth. We may not be NPR, but acclaim is acclaim, isn't 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.

Jay: Showing up to pick up your award is a great way to help me remember you and your work in the future. And nice use of the Simpsons terminology. Huzzah!
