Week 28: Pageant of the Transmundane

A person in a chicken suit showed up at a Durango, Colorado City Council meeting during a period when they were discussing changes to the city ordinances on the keeping of live chickens on residential property. And this person made quite a spectacle of themselves. No news on if this was Crackers the Corporate Crime Chicken in disguise (because we all know that there was no way Michael Moore was getting in a chicken suit).

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes to us from The Girl Gamer.

Christina discovered a Youtube animation which combined the Mushroom Kingdom with the world of Quentin Tarantino. It isn't a mashup... more a reimagining of Mario's trip through the surreal world he found himself in back in 1985.

And because this week's winning entry is Pulp Fiction related, I thought a picture of Homer Simpson in a black suit from his time as the Mayor's bodyguard would be the most appropriate, non-Mario related image. I also thought about paying homage to Bruce Willis in that movie by choosing a picture of Homer during his boxing career, but somehow I think the suits are more iconic.

Congrats Christina. Here is your web 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 blogging village 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.

Thanks for the link, MC. The vid was great and I'm enjoying the rest of the site, as well.

Arjan: If it was PG-13, then I should have demanded to see some bare breasts.

Kristyn: Transmundanity is my bread and butter.
