Week 33: Pageant of the Transmundane

Apparently, you can bicycle nude in New Zealand as long as you are wearing a helmet. Hmmm... I guess you learn something new every day. Why just yesterday I heard that you can deep-fry butter. I don't know why you would want to... but apparently it is possible.

This week's winning entry comes to us from, and let me get this right because it is quite a mouthful (so many jokes... must resist... urge... to be dirty), Calvin's Canadian Cave of Coolness, that bastien of monitor sized header graphics, for Ye it is true.

This is a self-nomination, though I had really do some detective work, as their email didn't indicate that they were in fact the proprietor of the blog in question.

But that being said, there are indeed many things of transmundane splendor on the above site, and one such item has indeed won the award this week.

It is an image of the most unlikely of meetings or even seeming alliances. I am talking about some weird Aquaman/Cthulhu crossover.

I mean, seriously, what the hell is that about? I mean, yes, it could be a Kraken, but it looks like Cthulhu has totally corrupted Aquaman (I guess this was right before the Lovecraftian fiend forced the DC to make that awful game).

Of course, I could have probably done a better search for a Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award picture, but alas, I am writing this on Christmas Eve, so this one of Pieman will have to do for the moment. ;)

Congrats (k)Cal... 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 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.
