Week 29: Pageant of the Transmundane

A heterosexual couple in England applied to have a civil union and were denied, as that is a designation reserved for same sex couples only. The couple in question feel that they should be equal under the law.

With that being said, there are some weeks where it is very difficult coming up with a definitive winner in this contest... whether it be having to choose from so many qualified applicants or one of those rare occasions where there is an utter dearth of quality stuff for that week.

But this is one of those times where there was one thing which dominated a week, an entry which was head and shoulders above the rest. In this case, the item in question was on a lot of sites this week, so I have to give the award to the first place I saw it.

For those of you who have been surfing the net this week, I am sure you have seen The Muppets' Bohemian Rhapsody, and the first place I saw it was at Electronic Cerebrectomy. Muppets are always a winner in this competition, and since it was something done by the actual Muppets and not a mashup, it is super professional.

So to mark this win, I wanted to pick an image which was somehow related to that masterpiece, but I've used almost all the Simpsons/Muppets pictures out there, so I had to go with Homer working with a sock puppet to try to convince Maggie to eat spinach.

Congrats to Aaron for getting to the top in my own little corner of blog reading the fastest with the mostest. And you certainly know the drill. Here is your blogging 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.
