Week 31: Pageant of the Transmundane

It has been a week of political scandal and profanity, and one which I thought was capped off quite well in terms of Transmundanity by a surprise appearance by Hall and Oates on the Daily Show. Let's see what I came up for the web equivalent of that real world oddity.

This week's winner comes from a blog which seems to be, based on my keen deductive sense, a collection of the sort of things that people forward each other through email. After all, the site I found it on was called Dee's Inbox.

The entry that caught my attention this week was simply entitled Why I was Fired, which has an odd little picture that is vaguely alcohol related... but it is definitely safe for work however, that much I can assure you.

And since this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award has to do with alcohol, well, Homer celebrating beer seemed to be a fitting tribute to this accomplishment.

Congratulations Dee... this 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 was once camping in Belgium and there you could get a bucket of some sort of mix which you were expected to empty with a couple of persons, but who's counting ;)

Micgar said...

Damn -just 1/4 cup would get you blitzed! Ha ha!

Megan said...

Ha! How could you even lift it when full?

Arjan: Did you empty one yourself? And if you did, did you then empty your stomach contents?

Micgar: I think 1/4 cup would kill me... I am not a huge drinker, so I don't have liquor legs.

Megan: Beer Muscles? Ok, that was a bad joke.
