Year 5, Week 1: Pageant of the Transmundane

Welcome to another wonderful year of oddity, another year of the bizarre, another year of the Transmundane.

I could gild the lily, and bore you all to tears with my own self-awareness about this matter, or I could just cut to the chase.

Hmmm, I think I will do the latter.

This week's winning entry comes to us from the fertile soil of Back of the Cereal Box, a blog that has won this race more than once before.

For this particular outing, Drew made some rather humorous observations about a particular work of art he had seen during a recent visit to a local gallery. The piece in question, Guido Reni’s Bacchus and Ariadne, totally reads the way Drew has presented it.

And because this week's winning entry has to do with Italian art, well, this old gem seemed to be the most fitting image for the whole thing.

Congratulations Drew, and thank you for providing this year with another auspicious start. Here is your badge. Huzzah!

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.
