Easter Peep show draws hundreds

Dick and Nancy discuss Peeps art.

There are Peeps diorama contests held all across the nation, not least of which is that sponsored by the Seattle Times. Here, take a look.  This year's contest attracted hundreds of entries. As Nancy pointed out, it's perfectly possible that these Peepsle have too much time on their hands. Some fun, huh?

Peeps are not just for Easter anymore. There's Halloween Peeps, Christmas, even Valentine's Day versions. Whether or not you're interested in actually eating something which lists carnauba wax as an ingredient is not the point anymore. We're talkin' art here!

"On average, 5.5 million peeps are born each day."
