Week 39: Pageant of the Transmundane

A dude robbed a couple of 7/11s with a mini Klingon Bat'leth in the Denver area. I guess he was stealing the money to buy a full sized one. I mean, really, who uses such an identifiable weapon.

Well, we know he is a bit of a geek, don't we?

Can this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity winner top that? We shall see.

Now I saw the item that ultimately won at a couple of blogs this week, but I have to give the prize to the first place I saw it, which was over at Quit Your Day Job, a fine blogging establishment created by Lee Sargent.

It is a Batman related video... but maybe not the one you are thinking of.

And because this week's winning entry has to do with Batman, I thought that a picture of Homer running past the Batmobile (which in a later shot is beside Adam West) would be the most fitting tribute. There were other directions I could have went with the image, I admit, but to me, I think this is rock solid.

Congratulations Lee on your win. 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.

You have no idea how much I've coveted that little badge over the years.

I am beyond happy.

I've got a Doom picture with your name ALL over it.

Arjan: And as you are a fellow fan of Lee's work, I am sure you saw it the day I did ;)

Lee: I am glad you are pleased, however, please do not construe your winning the award as any sort of bribe or method of altering the outcome of your own contest. You draw the picture you feel is most in keeping with your personal aesthetic. (Damn these ethics of mine).
