Week 13: Pageant of the Transmundane

A man named Elvis Presley is running for governor of Arkansas. With name recognition like that, he is a shoo in for public office (as long as a damaging picture with Richard Nixon doesn't surface that is).

This week's winning entry comes to us from a wild and woolly blogging habitat called Casual Slack.

In this case, Jen discovered a wickedly funny captioned picture of Wilford Brimley (that dude should be in everything).

Why this image for this week's winning entry? Brimley on a horse... Homer on a horse... and I couldn't find a good image of Homer being whipped by apes at the end of the Rosebud episode, so here we are.

Congrat Jen on your find. 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.

I'm not sure of a picture with Nixon would actually be damaging.

Depends on what he is doing really.
