Week 5: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello everybody. Feel free to come in from the rain... just makes sure you wipe your feet before you come in, because as always, there is a lot of shit flying around in the blogging village. I am just waiting for these storms to move out back to the political blogs where they usually dwell, but until then, why not sit a spell here and wait it out.

Now, I have a confession to me. I went to high school with this week's winner, and he played the Steven Keaton to my unshaven Jennifer Keaton in an on-stage send up of Family Ties. It is the truth, but there is no favoritism going on here. I am merely stating it for the record.

The blog in question is called ...Exile in Blogville, and I've been reading it for a couple of months now.

Yhe winning entry is a discussion about the occasional similarity between the smell of potato chips and a certain malodorous bodily emanation. It sounds peculiar, but by god, does it go somewhere funny, and it gave me a new catchphrase for that sort of release.

It certainly makes me rethink the phrase "All that and a bag of chips," which may be part of the point of the whole exercise, come to think of it.

And because this week's winning entry has to do with potato chips, well, the visual representation had to be Homer Simpson with a chip, and what is more exotic than a shot from space.

Congrats Dan on this win. Here is a badge for your blog. Huzzah!

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.

Well Matt-you know what they say-"you can't fart just one" or did they say eat? Oh well!

Well, with Lays, it tends to work out both ways.
