Peep Show

I'm not much for celebrating Easter. But I had a houseguest--Sean from Sydney--and I felt that I should do something other than my usual holiday celebration, in which I work late before collapsing into bed.

I called up Michael Kraiger and Jon Babc0ck and we (well, Kraiger) made an Easter dinner.

When we went to buy the supplies in ShopRite, there were blue Peeps on display at the front of the store. They don't have Peeps in Australia, as far as I know, so I tossed them in the cart.

"Ever put a Peep in a microwave?" Michael Kraiger has a 7-year-old daughter and knows all kinds of kid games.


So we microwaved a Peep. Then we tried to get one to absorb dregs of wine. The former got better results than the latter.

No one would eat even an uncooked Peep. They ended up in the Jersey City landfill.

Plying peeps with wine and microwaving them? You'd better hope PETA doesn't find out about this.
Love the photos, by the way.

Coincidentally, I came across more news about peeps... http://blog.washingtonpost.com/rawfisher/2006/04/props_to_the_peeps_man.html

What's really fun is Dualling Peeps.

You stick a toothpick into the beak of each Peep, and place two of them in the microwave, fairly close together, facing each other.

As they expand, eventually one of them will pierce the other with the tip of its toothpick. The loser will then instantly deflate. It's grand.

I am going to have to try dualling Peeps. I wonder if it's too late to find any on the Easter candy sale racks.
