* peep * peep * peep *

I made one of these tonight. I never made a three-dimensional critter before; uber-cute. (She's got rabbits, too.)

Isis: And just who do you think you are?


Oh, nevermi... zz...zzz...zzzzzz...

Then there are other kinds of peeps.


Odo, for example. Back in May 2005, he looked like this (he's the peep that doesn't match).

Now he looks like this:


And because of his unusual good looks (or, rather, his unusual looks), now he has all the girls to himself. Lucky boy!

And then there are the peeps that never grow up. In fact, I think perhaps they put the same ones out year after year. They just stick the unsold packages away in some back storeroom somewhere, and restock them on the shelves again come Eastertime.


Then, of course, there are just plain wrong peeps.


Now here's a whole pile of them: a shrine of over 5,000 peeps, "Holy Totem, Sweet Taboo" by artist David Ottogalli [the shrine link is on the left sidebar]. The close-ups are holy something, Batman!

And then there are plain old happy blue peeps...


...and yellow lovepeeps touring the world.

The only thing funnier than a smoking monkey is a smoking Peep. I do like the lovepeeps, though.

You know, if you flambe peeps, all that sugar on the outside carmalizes and the inside goes campfire soft. It's actually nearly platable. We did it once for a story and I took a lot of heat -- no pun intended -- for showing a flaming Peep in the paper. Evidently some concerned mothers were concerned their blossoming pyromaniacs would follow my Peep murdering ways.

oh S.U.! perhaps where you live the mothers have nothing worse to write angry letters about than flaming peeps? (flaming OR a'flame, either way, down south, that's bad)
