Week 38: Pageant of the Transmundane

Improperly prepared Blowfish testicles poison seven in Japan while a defendant caused a mistrial by smearing feces on his lawyer's face. Which is weirder? I don't know. But I do think this week's Transmundanity winner tops both of those stories.

This week's winning entry comes from the New England style lodgings of Casual Slack.

Jen discovered and reposted a rather unique family portrait that I think will leave some readers scarred (or even just scared) for life.

And because a family portrait is involved, naturally, I had a particular Simpson image in mind for this week. Yes, it is one of the famous family portraits Bart found a way to wreck. If you can think of a more appropriate Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award image, I'd like to see it.

Congratulations Jen. 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.

Arjan: Well, he is a frightening individual.

Megan: It was SFW if that was any consolation.
