Week 8: Pageant of the Transmundane

DOH! I thought I posted on Friday Night, but apparently I messed up and it ended up in the draft file.

This week, a man in rural New Jersey was mugged by a black bear for an Italian sandwich. Just when you thought you only had to worry about getting mugged by human beings in New Jersey, some resourceful bear decided to up the ante. Officials at Jellystone National Park could not be reached for commment. Perhaps Stephen Colbert has been right about bears all along.

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes to us from the blog Lying Bastard, which features a lot of things which are truly worthy of the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award. However, there was one particular thing which really caught my attention (and perhaps give me nightmares).

Something that gets creepier and creepier the more I watch it. It is like the energizer bunny of bizarre and unsettling.

View it and have your skin crawl a little bit.

Now, if I explain this Homer Simpson related image, well, I may be giving away the horror that lay within the link.

Congrats Cooper Green on creeping my out this week. 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.

that's certainly a collection of strange.

Thank you for the kind recognition, and the chance to discover your blog (which is not only pretty damn good, but patriotically Canuckular). As much as I appreciate the award I regret that I can't accept it, because as luck would have it, that haunting Julia Roberts acid refluxer is the only thing on my new site that isn't my creation. And since I just found it out there someplace, I can't even attribute it. Keep looking, though; if you find something else you like on my site, I'll gratefully be a Transmundane Award recipient.

- Coop

Arjan: Indeed.

Cooper: I give the award to the place I find it. That's the way it has always been.
