For reasons best known to itself, the Washington Post has been running a Peeps Diorama Contest.
"There were copious dioramas with antiwar or patriotic themes ("Give Peeps a Chance" and "George Washingpeep Crossing the Delaware," for example). Several chronicled Britney Spears's meltdown in front of the "Peeparazzi." Two dioramas adapted a classic Charlton Heston movie line: "Soylent Green is Peeps!"
There were some that stretched the boundaries of taste, such as the diorama titled "Dear Metrobus: Please Stop Running Over Our Peeps," which featured a cardboard bus with prostrated marshmallow bunnies in front of it. And an Army officer stationed in Kandahar, Afghanistan, crafted a diorama of Saddam Hussein's execution, with a purple bunny Peep hanging from a noose.
As we said: Wow."
Wow indeed. You can see the top 21 here (alas, none of the Britney Spears dioramas made the cut.) Just to whet your appetite, here are two. First, 'To Catch A Peepator':
Happy Easter! Open thread.
