Week 20: Pageant of the Transmundane

Sometimes events and Transmundanity winners just go so well together. This is one of those rare weeks as you will see.

Earlier this week, I stumbled across an interesting variation of a particular card game at a site called Mightgodking, and it made such an impression on me that it basically cleared the road in front of it.

Picture this: the current election as reimagined as a set of Magic: The Gathering cards. I know it doesn't sound like much, but wow, the breadth of references and the sheer number of cards (there was a sequel post which makes me think that you really could play a game of Magic with all the cards available).

And because this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award winner has to do with playing games, well, a Simpsons based Monopoly board with a Treehouse of Horror theme seemed exceedingly appropriate as the image to represent the winning entry.

Congrats to the various bloggers of Mighty God King.

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 blogosphere 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.

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.
