Week 23: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week, I should be reporting from New York, Montreal or Boston as once again a heavy hitter has won this award, but alas, I am sitting on my ass in a bus station outside of South Bend, Indiana, which is still a pretty auspicious place to be for this award period.

By now, you may have a few of the usual suspects playing through your head, and have likely guessed who won the award this week. But for those of you who haven't been following this award for a long time, there is a man who stands astride the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Awards like Jack Nicholson at the Oscars.

That man is Mr. Fabulous at Pointless Drivel.

A few weeks back, I sort of called Mr. Fabulous out after another blogger pulled a stunt which was of his caliber of demented work. And boy, did he deliver.

I don't know if my admonishment did anything to stoke the fires within, but I have to say, I am notably impressed by his restraint.

You see, after yet another blogger called him out about his sensitive palate, well, he decided to buy the hottest hot sauce he could find and put his tongue to the test. What happened after that is gold, fried gold, man!

You are a sick, sick man Fab. And I think the image below is appropriate for this Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, don't you?



And I am sure you know what to do with one of these as well:



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 campybeaver@gmail.com 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.

You always stoke my fires, my friend. Sometimes in a very sexy albeit disturbing way.

I am truly honored. Gotta make more room on the mantle.

Whoo-hoo!

All hail the fab.

Fab: Just as long as you don't try to take me on a seesaw until dust bunnies come out, I think you will keep finding yourself in contention with this award committee.

Mel: All hail Fab indeed.

Just watched it...one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. I could almost see the animated flames shooting out of his mouth as he tried it, just like the cartoons.

Best part is the last five seconds.

I love the anecdote that filming that made Fab's wife literally ill.
