Week 5: Pageant of the Transmundane

The Weird Headline of the Week: Woman spots man in bra rummaging through her car. The explanation is just gravy really.

This week's winning entry comes from CubeMe.

What was so wonderfully bizarre that it won this award? Brace yourselves... it is a report about a flesh-like television remote from Panasonic that lays flaccid if not in use but suddenly stiffens when approached by a human hand. I wish I was kidding, I really did.

And since this week's winning entry is about remote controls, well... this picture seems to go with that.

Congratulations to Chantal and to everyone at CubeMe.

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.

That remote was definitely developed by a dude!

Well, it all depends on how responsive that material is I guess.
