Week 27: Pageant of the Transmundane

Live from wherever I am, it is the Transmundanity Awards, featuring Siobhan Fallon, Melanie Hutsell and Julia Sweeney. Wait, I took a wrong turn at 1994 in New York.

Once again this week's winner was recommended by Maven (who has been on a little bit of a hot streak when it comes to finding the bizarre and sending it to me through Stumbleupon)

Sometimes the transmundane is truly mind boggling or expanding, sometimes it is awe-inspiring, sometimes it transcends your expectations of the world....

...and sometimes it is all about how goofy people are sometimes.

Case in point, this week's winning entry, which hails from The MAC Chronicles, has to do with a set of pictures from a particular wedding that redefines the term trashy.

I've seen themed weddings before... but honestly, pimps and hoes just somehow makes all those Star Trek/Wars/Lord of the Rings/LARP weddings seem downright normal.

I know that in fact, this wedding might be part of a cultural ritual for a particular nomadic group in Europe, but that doesn't mean I still can't find what emerged strange and worth gawking at.

For a trashy wedding, I have to go with some white trash accompaniment for Homer, in the pleasing visage of Cletus, who had just got done with the feudin' and the fussin' at a parenting class (something that I think I am safe in assuming that the parents of both the bride and the groom from the winning entry has ever been associated with).

Congrats Marcy on your win.

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.

that was just..trashy.
Looking at 'mum' they could've just as well included a boobjob for the bride in the costs.

The Bride will have them after she has her first child in six months.
