Why Eat Peeps When You Can Marry Them (to Each Other)? (VIDEO)

OMG 10

just peep'dPeeps! Peeps, peeps, peeps. Who doesn't love themselves some Peeps?! It's like somebody took every single happy moment of your childhood and dipped them all in glittery colored sugar and reliving those carefree, joyous times is as simple as going to the store and buying a box for like, $1.99.

Peeps, my friends, make life worth living.

That said, I don't actually like EATING Peeps. Which is weird, because I have a huge sweet tooth and generally I'm a hardcore marshmallow fan. Still, no matter how many times I try (figure at least once a year for the past few decades), every time I bite into a Peep ... I'm disappointed.

So I absolutely LOVE it when people get all creative with Peeps in a non-edible way. Perfect example: The Sixth Annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest

Make no mistake: These aren't the kind of "dioramas" you associate with elementary school. These entries elevate Peeps to a fine art form. Seriously! Just look at little Will and Kate in the photo above (Just Peep'd). Aw, they're married! Royally adorable!

This year's winner, OccuPeep D.C., is even a political statement of sorts:

occupeep d.c.

Check out this video for the stories behind OccuPeep D.C., four finalists and other standouts. Then get yourself to the store before they run out of Peeps -- you've got a lot of work to do!

What kind of scene would you create using Peeps?

Someone posred on Facebook a scene of a "peep" show. Its a peep on a stripper pole with the chick peeps throwing money at the stripper bunny peep. That by far is the funniest.

Stale peeps are the best. You need to let the air get to them. I dont like the flavored ones nor the ones with chocolate on them. Leave well enoygh alone peep makers.

I have that one billsfan.

I also have one of peeps protesting fig newtons like the westboro church protest thing. They are holding signs saying god hates figs and quoting some bible verse about a fig tree.

I don't like eating marshmallows plain either, but I do like PEEPS. The best way to eat them is as PEEPS S'mores. Place a graham cracker (I prefer chocolate ones) on a small plate. Top with your favorite chocoloate. Hershey bar, Dove or even York Peppermint Patty or Reeses peanut butter cup are all good. Then top with PEEP. I like the bunnies best. Microwave for 20 seconds on high. You can make it a sandwich with another graham cracker after cooking. I like it left open faced. essy but sooo good.

My kids would love to stage their Peeps in mock battles and such.

I don't like eating Peeps either.  I love marshmallows, but not Peeps.  My kids love them though.  These are cute.
