Week 42: Pageant of the Transmundane

The Pageant of the Transmundane is a fickle mistress. Sometimes it is a particular visual image or an odd juxtaposition in song or video that wins it all.

And ever so rarely is it an anecdote that wins out. But in this case, it is exactly that. I found a random entry from Jay Barnes talking about particular acts of animal husbandry that I don't care to mention in the description, but I will give you the title of the piece: Maybe the Dog isn't that into you. I think that gives you a hint of what it concerns.

And well, since we are talking about dogs that aren't really into someone, I thought that having a picture of Dogs that aren't really into Homer (with good reason of course) would be the most appropriate image for this week's Pageant of the Transmundane.

Congratulations Jay Barnes on this victory.

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.

yikes-1 I know you probably get tired of me tagging but thought I would ask for this crazy 8's thing-unless you've already done it!

That's quite a post! I didn't know that people did that! Talk about crappy jobs!
How would the interview for this type of job go? "...and one last question...uhhm..we know that you really like dogs, but, how good are you at...disassociation?"

See, the part that pushed it over the top was the fact that some of the animals aren't into it... which makes the activity that much worse.

Thanks so much for spotlighting Jay's writing! I didn't know he was still actively writing. I'm a huge fan of his "Eat thy corn, fishmonger!"

That is part of the reason why I linked to his main blog, but awarded to his reprinting one.
