Week 43: Pageant of the Transmundane

Apparently the Vatican wants people to give up texting for Lent in addition to their other chosen sacrifice. Considering the President of the United States is using a Blackberry himself, I don't think culturally that is going to happen in the US anyway. Maybe in South America that decree will fly (as long as the Pope wasn't talking about plastic surgery being off the table for 40 days, I think almost anything else would be fine).

Did I see something that was more Transmundane this week? Perhaps, but you will have to be the judge (however, the crack about South America, I will wager that was the most incendiary thing I said this week).

This week's winning entry comes from Film Drunk, a blog who I assume has a readership every hour that eclipses my daily haul by a large margin.

Now, you know that I generally don't choose the larger blogs when I select a Transmundanity winner, but in this case, I felt an exception was in order, especially since it is pop culturally related. In the simplest terms, it is a strange picture of Sean Connery... holding another picture of himself.

And somehow, I thought this was the most appropriate Homer Simpson image to represent it. You may or may not agree with that assessment, but I am sticking with it.

Congrats go out to Vince Mancini and the staff of Film Drunk. Huzzah!

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.
