Week 48: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from the island of Fiji. I was chasing down Carmen Sandiego when once again, my obligations to this award have taken precedence, and she got away. So let's get on with it.

Without further ado or gilding the lily, I shall announce this week's winner... but first, I felt it germane to mention that last week's winner has received over 7000 hits because of the previously unmentioned perk of this award, which is having said entry added to Stumbleupon if it isn't already there. So, winning sometimes does indeed have its benefits. I can't guarantee those kinds of results for every winner, but seeing a winner take off, well, it warms my heart really.

Now that being said, let's get on with the show. This week's winning entry comes from the inviting shores of the Bad Boys inspired layout of Mattress Police.

Diesel penned a brilliant piece in the style of an operating manual for his own brain, a manual which deals with a lot of different problems a beautiful mind like his own faces. It had wit, and well, I liked it.

And since this week's winner has to do with the brain, well, an image of Homer Simpson's undersized cognition organ seemed appropriate for the Transmundanity Award this time out. Wouldn't you agree?

Congrats Diesel on the win. 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.
