Where My Peeps At?

Over on our Facebook page earlier this week, Endless Simmer was ruminating about how excited we are for Peeps Season. (Of course you already know this if you are friends with us.)

Seriously though, how awesome is Easter? Jellybeans, Cadbury’s eggs, marshmallow peeps – it’s like Halloween but with Jesus. And this year, it comes extra early. Oh man, we must have been good this year or something.

Building on our excitement, JoeHoya wanted to make sure we knew the Washington Post runs an annual PEEPS DIORAMA CONTEST.

It’s OK, take a minute. I’m sure you’re staggering back with excitement the same way I was. Here are the details:

We want you to make a diorama of a famous occurrence or scene. It can be a historical, current or future event, or it can be a nod to pop culture. The main rule is that all the characters must be played by Peeps, those marshmallowy chicks and rabbits that start plaguing checkout lines in every grocery and convenience store this time of year….The winner will receive a $100 American Express gift check and a Peeps prize pack courtesy of Just Born, the company that owns the Peeps brand. Four runners-up will receive a $50 American Express gift check and a Peeps prize pack.

Let’s recap:

You get to make a diorama, for the first time since grade school, you have to incorporate peeps, you can win dollar bills, and “Extra credit may be given to deft use of puns in the concept or title.”

Oh it’s on.

    Ok, so I’m a little worried for asking this but excuse my British… Peeps?

    oh, Brit, you haven’t lived. Here is all the information you could ever hope to know about Peeps…a warning that this site may cause instant insanity.

    A “NSFW” advisory would be appreciated next time, but thanks for the lesson.

    You people are CRAZY!

    Thanks for reminding me of this! I had a lot of fun perusing the submissions last year and was very impressed by what others had done. I’d enter the contest myself, but I don’t think I have quite that much free time on my hands…

    Did you check out the Peeps contest for this year? I like Project Peepway and No Country for Old Peeps.
