Week 25: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from Manisa, Turkey. Again, I don't know what I am doing here, but it does seem like an interesting place, though I am suddenly left with the urge to drink a lot of Milk of Magnesia.

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes from a blog called Tim's Ramblings.

Tim posted a rather unique restaurant poster explaining what you are supposed to do at a Mongolian Barbeque in Japanese and English. This is an expectation defying sight, mainly because of the type of English it features.

And since this week's winning entry has to do with BBQ, well, it seemed fitting to have Homer's rather pitiful attempt at building a barbeque pit for the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award.

Congratulations Tim. 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.

I wanted to describe it as Ali G's take on an in-restaurant instructional manual.

That is wild! And yeah, it is a little different due to the "grammar" used!

Awesome post, I agree with Arjan, every restaurant should do this.
