Week 20: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from the rolling hills of flavor country. Now, I almost said from Fab country though he did not win this week. However, when you see what DID win, you will know why I have made that comparison.

Jim Squires of FJetsam fame has started making vlog entries, and between his first foray into this medium and the second, he decided to put up a short 21 second video where he discusses a minor cosmetic change that he made that has changed his life.

You see, he used to have a beard, and he decided to do a little shaving, but he didn't want to take it all off... and so he ended up with the most maligned facial hair configuration in the history of mankind.

Yeah... that one!

It was totally a move out of the Mr. Fab playbook. Shocking. Audacious. Funny as Hell. Of course, Fab wouldn't have the hair to pull Jim's stunt off, but that is another story.

And seeing how The Simpsons is the catch all for all things pop cultural, I had a feeling that an appropriate trophy would be available for this 72nd Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, and indeed, such an image does indeed exist.

Congrats Jim on a job well done.

And because Jim's first Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award win was during Week 27 last year, and it is now only week 20 this year, this is his third win within the span of a year. This also allows me to award him the additional distinction of being a Triple Crown Winner as well.

Huzzah! Huzzah! 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.
