Week 37: Pageant of the Transmundane

OK, this one isn't funny, it is just weird. A couple from Ohio who moved is being prevented from selling their house because they owe 6 cents to the local water company. 6 cents.

This week's winning entry comes to us from All That Is Interesting

In this case, it is the actual advertisement for the casting call for audience in the Smells Like Teen Spirit video.

Since this week's winning entry has to do with Nirvana, I thought Homer's stint in a grunge band would be the most appropriate way to express that.

Congrats! 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.

Bring the 6 cents to closing and be done with it - that's crazy! Poor people!

They moved to North Carolina... so they aren't in that area and the water company isn't helping them even though they call and call about it.

I'd send the 6 cents in an envelope.

A certain internet provider where I worked for a year had a policy to not send invoice agencies after people for debts smaller than 1€ (1,20U$ or so..)

oh and as you know..I love Nevermind :)
Although an entire afternoon of replaying one song would be a bit much for me too.
