Week 15: Pageant of the Transmundane

A bank robber was arrested this week after he wrote a newspaper that wrote about his crime and berated them for getting details wrong. The police quickly arrested him after they looked at the personal information it contained. There is one word that describes this individual: dumbass.

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes to us from Semaj's Blog Your Blog.

On Thursday, he found and posted a ridiculous ad for the Snuggie featuring a takeoff of the Macarena. And seriously, what the hell was up with the Snuggie centerfold. That was bizarre, and that was the moment that put it over the top.

And because this week's winning entry has to do with long, flowing robe-like warming devices, I thought that Homer as a Movementarian, in similar garb, would be most appropriate.

Congrats James. 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.
