Week 31: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week, CNN prefaced a story about a guy who had a horrific case of ulcerative colitis with a particular movie clip: the bathroom diarrhea clip from Dumb and Dumber. Someone in the clearance department there has a sick sense of humor.

Anyway, this week's winning entry comes to us from The House Cat.

Now I am sure a lot of you are familiar with some of the smartass reviews that people write on Amazon, especially about products with a rather specialized and limited clientele.

One item that lends itself to this style of humorous narrative is audio cables. Especially the nearly 7 thousand dollar variety.

Oh god, the voices.

And since this week's winning entry has to do with a possible end of the world, I thought Homer warning people of that same thing would be the most appropriate expression of this idea.

Congrats J. 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.
