Week 50: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week's winner explores a little bit of new ground for the awards. We've had all manner of strange subjects, provocative poses and weird juxtapositions for the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, but never have I rewarded an entry that showcases profound ignorance and stupidity.

I think this week's winner represents the first time that last set of facets was the deciding factor in determining who would be the victor.

You see, SamuraiFrog of Electronic Cerebrectomy discovered one of the stupidest picket signs I've ever seen. I mean, the ignorance involved in staggering, and it is that very quality that made it stick out for me this week.

And even though I can think of three episodes of the Simpsons that include the Olympics, I can't find a single good related image from them, so instead, I had to explore the theme of picket signs, and well, there was something specific that came to mind for that one, and so it became the representation of this week's winner.

Congrats Honorable Amphibian of the Japanese Warrior Class. *bow*

EDIT: it has come to my attention that in addition to winning the Transmundanity Award this week, SamuraiFrog has also won his third award in a calendar year(with wins in week 51 of last year and 26 of this year). Thus, he has also won the Transmundanity Triple Crown.

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.

Yes! That makes me a three time winner! Damn, I wanted that.

I had totally forgotten about week 26 this awards year... and since your first one was week 51 of last year, you did squeak into 3 award wins within a calendar year, and thus, you have won the Triple Crown. I will alter this post to reflect that.

Congrats samurai! That was great find!

SamuraiFrog said...

Ah, I thought I was too late. That's even better.

SF: Indeed... I think the reason I missed your earlier win this year was because of the way your blog title broke on the sidebar.

Micgar: I'll take that as a seal of approval.
