Week 4: Pageant of the Transmundane

A man was sentenced to 30 months probation after trying to steal dirty diapers from a home. Naturally, he is currently undergoing psychiatric evaluation. Of course, if he loved dirty diapers so much, he could have likely made money and had as many as he wanted if he just started a diaper collection business. Guess he wasn't thinking.

Anyway, on to less skeevy stuff.

This week's winning entry comes to us from the blog of the excellent graphic designer Jamie Wieck.

The designer in question put together a poster called The Joy of Cycling, which is just so wrong and so right at the same time.

And since the poster in question features the graphic rendering of real people on bikes, I thought that having our namesake cartoon character riding a bicycle in the real world would be the most appropriate image. I found the image at Faces 2010

Congrats Jamie on having such a wickedly awesome vision. 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.
