Week 36: Pageant of the Transmundane

There is a rhesus monkey who throws feces on the loose in Tampa Bay. I can't make that up; it is just too weird.

But I digress. This week's winning entry comes from All I Need is Everything, which swept in with a late entry to pull off the victory.

You see, she posted a picture of a rather strange statue, that when I saw it, my first thought was "Who dumped chocolate pudding or mud on that little girl and puppy?" It is frightening, bizarre and perhaps cute, I haven't made a decision about that last part just yet.

And because this week's winning entry is statue related, I thought Homer in Pewter would be a more than appropriate marking of this Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award. I almost went with an image of Homer getting coldcocked running into the outstretched bronze fist of a Drederick Tatum, but I think this is better for these circumstances.

Congrats Megan. 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.

As a lover of pop culture, if you are ever in St. Louis, you need to visit Blueberry Hill. The owner has an amazing collection of pop culture paraphernalia. Homer out the yayhoo. And the burgers aren't bad either. Visit them, and visit me...

Fun, fun blog you have.

Megan: I more than appreciate being called the best Matt ever, I really do. ;)

Arjan: Would it give you nightmares if you saw it outside your door?

Squirrel: Thank you very much. :)

Queen Goob: If you drop me an email about it, perhaps you can win this week.

Pyzahn: I'd have to check that out if I was in that neighborhood.

I submit this jazzercise album cover. What do you think? :)

Arjan said...

it's at least ...disturbing haha

MC said...

Mariana: If it had been featured on a blog, it might have had a shot this week, but alas, something even more disturbing popped up in the blogging village during Week 37.

Arjan: That is was, that it was.
