Week 38: Pageant of the Transmundane

An overtoasted bagel forced the evacuation of Portland, Oregon's City Hall this week. No real joke. Just think about how many times you've burnt something in the toaster and firemen didn't show up. I'm just saying...

There are times when a Transmundanity winning entry is a singular item which is really weird and memorable.

This week, it is a group of weird things that all add up to a very strange and bizarre look at the world.

Now, I could gild the lily here and try to really sell this week's winner, but it isn't that kind of week.

This is a list of 50 more of the most "interesting" articles on Wikipedia. And by interesting, the proprietors of Copybot mean odd, weird and say what?

And because this week's winning entry has to do with Wikipedia, it seemed like an image of Homer looking up something online at something vaguely like an encyclopedia was the best option for the award this week.

Congrats Holly on this wonderful find. 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.

Though I must admit, it isn't knitted tampons... that one... that was special.
