Week 48: Pageant of the Transmundane

A Colorado police officer is currently on unpaid leave because he shocked around 30 students from a local high school during a job fair with a taser. Unlike a lot of other taser-related incidents, it looks like those students were asking for it. Literally. They were asking to be shocked just to know what it was like.

Part of me thinks that if you are asking a police officer to tase you, it will likely not be the last time you feel it.

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes from the blog, The Girl Gamer.

Christina found a t-shirt which riffs on two shows with a lead character named Dexter which is totally awesome. There should be more Dexter's Laboratory references in real life anyway.

And because this has to do with psychopathy, well, Homer Simpson recreating Jack Nicholson's iconic door-smashing scene from The Shining seemed to be the best fit.

Congrats Faith/Christina for this discovery.

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.

This is not a meme. This is an award that I give out, and thus, I am not "tagging" you.

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.
