Week 3: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week, a nun in Pittsburgh stopped a wallet thief in his tracks with just the power of her stern, authoritarian voice. I guess he remembered getting whacked by the ruler as a child.

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes to us from Nostomanic, a site which I will admit I misspelled the first five or so times I tried to return to it a few months ago. But I am glad I came back.

You see, the site's owner, Amber, recreated a unique pop culture moment, and played both parts in it, which is special in and of itself. The fact that the video is attached to an entry that basically tells you how to do the same thing she did just elevates it more.

I think this image will make a little more sense after you read the entry it is celebrating. I have to say this was one of those week's that I wished I could have went with another cartoon's art library because a particular Comedy Central cartoon had an image that was perfect for this. Absolutely perfect. This was really the best I could come up with for this week's entry.

Congratulations Amber. 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.

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.
