The Peeps Incident

Peep at Window

This is my peep. Although my peep looks almost exactly like the edible peeps, he is not. My peep is a stuffed toy. I got my peep from Mike last summer. On my birthday, he walked up to me lovingly cradling three stuffed peeps, a yellow, a purple, and a blue. He told me to choose one, and that the chosen peep was to be my birthday gift.

Perhaps I was swayed by Mike’s reverential handling of the peeps, but I am surprisingly fond of my peep. All year it has been sitting on top of my television. I pick him up from time to time and admire his fine craftsmanship. He is such a perfect replica of a peep, only better, because he is not made of gross “marshmallow.” I don’t have to eat this peep, I only have to love him.

In college we had a terrible peeps related incident. Someone in our house licked the bottom of several dozen peeps and then stuck them to another housemate’s bedroom door. It was funny, but it made a big mess (not to mention the flagrant wasting of perfectly good peeps). Tempers flared, negotiators were required, and the prank escalated into an “incident”.

It is an awesome situation when grown men are seriously discussing their feelings in regards to any incident involving peeps.

In the end, I believe the The Peeps Incident brought us all closer together.

    I don’t remember the “incident” at all, but I can picture it and I’m just going to guess that it was either Mike or Jesse who licked the peeps and stuck them to a door.

    Had to be Mike licking the peeps, and Jesse tweaking when he saw them. Right? Right?

    Am I the only person in the world who doesn’t like Peeps? I mean, I think they’re cute and all, but I can’t stand how they taste. And I’m someone who loves marshmallows, sugary things, and foods dyed colors not found in nature, so you’d think I’d be all about them, but I’m not.

    Cute reenactment, by the way. Happy Easter! :)

    I have never had a peep. I was almost tempted this year, but the colors put me right off…

    I also hate Peeps. Mostly because they look like they should be rich and yummy, but then they let you down with their bland “meh” taste. Sort of like chewing on cotton, but without the stringy-ness in your teeth. Not that I would know what chewing on cotton is like, mind you. Funny thing is, I love marshmellows; I could sit and eat a bunch of those big jet-puffed ones if given a bag.

    My sister loves Peeps. I never did understand her.
