Week 35: Pageant of the Transmundane

I read a story about an obese man who dressed up like a ninja to steal ATMs in Florida. That's pretty weird. Is it weirder than what won the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this week? You'll have to decide.

This week's winner comes from The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century, a funny blog that has been around since November 2001, which means it has some real legs. 7 years is a long time in the blogging village.

This time out the winning entry is merely an odd juxtaposition. Observe what happens at news sites sometimes with a caption for a story about a papal matter which is just so perfectly funny, it hurts.

And I think this Homer Simpson image is very fitting for the subject matter of the winning entry. I am just saying.

Congratulations Joey on your first Transmundanity 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.
