Week 45: Pageant of the Transmundane

A burgeoning French chessmaster has been implicated in cheating scandal involving a freeware chess application, mobile devices and a dude assuming particular positions in a hallway visible to the player in question.

My question is... couldn't they have just used the Cheers method?

This week's winner is simple in execution, but so hilarious. It involves one guy subtly altering the photos of a friend on Facebook, with winning results.

The winning entry comes from the blog Oli + Alex.

And since this week's winning entry has to do with photos, I thought the file photo of Homer with all the cigarettes in him mouth would best express this.

Congrats Oli. 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.
