Week 19: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from Hollywood. It sure is sunny here, but boy are their are lot of car chases and explosions here. And it smells vaguely of urine, but I think that is another story entirely.

This week's winning entry comes from the fine electronic pages of a Holy Juan.

And what kind of entry won it all this week? How about one detailing the fact that Hollywood is running out of 555 numbers. You know, how when you watch a movie or tv show and a telephone number is mentioned or written down, it always starts with 555... well, much like the rest of America, they seem to be getting all filled up.

It was very droll indeed.

And because this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award has to do with phones, well, it seemed only fitting to have an actual Homer Simpson based communication device as the image that represents this win.

Congrats Doug on your first win. 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.

maybe it's just sad that people remember all these phone nrs so they can't re-use em.

Some numbers are memorable though.
