Week 24: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week's winner is someone who submitted their own work to the contest, which is something I really like to see. And considering that they are also a first time winner, well, there is also the excitement of introducing someone new to the club as well.

So who won it this week you may ask? You shall soon see.

OK, I really suck at creating tension, so I'll just get on with it.

It seems that Blayde of Blayde's Blog had a little idea. You see, they were thinking about pet ownership and all of a sudden an idea straight out of Futurama hit them. Considering the number of pets one might keep in a terrarium, the next logical step naturally seems to be putting a solar system into one.

I mean, it is an idea whose time may eventually come. It's bold, it pushes the boundaries of science playing God and I can almost see the commercials for it now. It would be bigger than the Slinky, the Pet Rock and the Hula Hoop combined.

Of course, finding a Homer Simpson picture that was appropriate for this week's winning entry may have been tough. Let's see what we have to capture in a single image: Homer Simpson, space and keeping pets in a glass enclosure. That is a tall order indeed... I don't think I can pull it off. Oh wait, I think I can indeed pull that off.

Ta-da! Welcome to the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award club Blayde. And here is your badge.

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.

Blayde, never hesitate to submit... some of this contest's most prolific winners nominated themselves.

Semaj: I half-expect it to pop up in a game sometime soon.
