Week 2: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from the sunny vales of Hawaii. Seeing as I don't really like the sun, well, this is all some sort of joke on me, as I am virtually reflective on the beach.

That being said, with so many excellent contenders this week, I was able to spend a lot of time in front of the computer figuring out which contender was best.

This week's winner comes from Puppies, Kittens & Cirrhosis, a blog full of oddities, which as you know, I love to see.

There were quite a few strange and wondrous entries for me to peruse, but in the end, it was a large Pez dispenser that resembled something a little more provocative that took the day. I thought it was quite funny, and well in keeping with the spirit of this award.

And because of the nature of the character depicted on that same Pez dispenser, I thought that this would be the best representation of the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this week.

Come to think of it, I sort of want one of those now. Not the Pez dispenser, the Homer Simpson doll.

Congrats CTK on this momentous first win. Huzzah!

And don't worry Fab. I believe in you, and your ability to win this award again. After all, you practically built it.

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.

No comment.

MC said...

Arjan: Indeed... which is why I love it.

Diesel: Well, you always make a strong showing in the written categories when I am doing the supertransmundane awards.

Megan: Enough said I take it.

Ernie! What are you do-mmmph! mmmmph!

See, that is why the Children's Television Workshop doesn't recommend the shows from the 1970's for today's kids.

Oh my gosh that plush Homer is so cool! I love his little pants!

Karl said...

Hawaii?! You bitch!

MC said...

Becca: I thought it was pretty spiffy myself.

Karl: Yeah, my wonderful world of blogging is great... hehe.

CTK said...

Thanking you for this great honor (do you spell it 'honour' up in the Great White North?) is the least I can do, eh?

Much obliged, and thanks for tuning me in to your own bit o' silliness on the interwebs.


PS - I'm visiting Toronto in July, and I understand the gentlemen's club industry has fallen on hard times. As a red-blooded owner of both X and Y chromosomes, I'd like to help. Can you recommend the best places to direct my rehabilitation contributions?

MC said...

You most certainly earned it... unfortunately, the vagaries of the Toronto strip scene are lost on me.
