Week 30: Pageant of the Transmundane

A British brewery has taken two iconic items, Stilton cheese and ale, and blended them together in a bottle. I don't know if it is supposed to be used as a condition in a bar bet or if the brewery in question was trying to get ahead of Jones Soda in terms of weird carbonated beverages, but I think I will surely pass on the Blue Brew, because I am sure it tastes so much worse coming back up.

On that lovely note, this week's winning entry comes to us from the literary blog HTMLGIANT.

In this case, it is an elegy to the expired domain girl. We've all seen her, we've just never had a cogent backstory to go with her. And now we do.

And since this week's winning entry has to do with expired domains and the anonymous figures they put on them to denote they are no longer the site you once knew but are on the market, I thought Homer as Mr. X would best indicator of that.

Congrats Jimmy, 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.
