Week 51: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week, the State of Oklahoma now has an official Rock song after Governor Brad Henry signed an executive order giving The Flaming Lips' "Do you Realize?" that designation. I didn't even know that OK was looking for a song to call its own. I thought all those songs from that musical would have been enough. I can't remember what it was called, but it was huge... I think it had an 8 letter name. Man, why can't I remember it. It is on the tip of my brain.

I think that musical was called Ohio... no wait, Okla-homa? Yeah, that's it.

Anyway, this week's winner of the penultimate Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this year comes from the blog

Now this is sort of an omnibus entry which discusses and displays a group of weird bike designs. Some of them are just weird, and a few are just inspired. It is that blend that ultimately made this entry a winner.

And because this winning entry had to do with odd bicycles, well, I thought an image of Homer being confronted by an Old Timey bike would be the most appropriate one for this prize.

So congrats to the crew at 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.

great bikes. I'd be afraid it would get stolen though, you really want it in a guarded parkingplace.

Congrats on your 3rd anniversary btw.

Some of them are really sweet rides though.
