Did you know Peeps are turning 60 this year? You can read more about that here and see a slide show of how they're
Every year The Washington Post has a Peeps diorama contest - and every year we (we = me and some of my sillier siblings/in-laws) say we are going to enter. But we never remember until it's time for the contest winners to be announced. Someday! (Although it's a bit of a challenge as I believe you have to hand deliver your diorama - a logistical problem since we all live on the west coast. But we'll figure it out...)
Anyway, the winners from this year were announced on Tuesday.You can see the winner and other finalists here. I had planned to post some of the pics here, but there are just too many good ones, so you need to go and flip through the slide show. I especially like "Zero Peep Thirty." You can view more entries here. I especially like slide 11 - Pink Slime - and slides 12 and 21 also made me laugh out loud. And be sure to check out slide 32 for a doggy-themed diorama: Banana Joe the Affenpeepscher as Best in Peeps.
We are stock-piling Peeps (pretty sure they last forever) and some day we WILL enter!
