Peeps

Every year The Washington Post holds a contest around Easter for the most interesting diorama using peeps. When I saw this notice regarding an exhibition of peep art by artists in Spartanburg, who have created a mock digital demonstration of peeps during an Easter jelly bean hunt, I thought of this contest.

This year’s contest was stellar with lots of creative ingenuity, wit and famous art referenced pieces. All photos by Bill O’Leary for The Washington Post. There are so many more peep entries than these to see,

“Eep” Peep was in fact my favorite, as I have posted on the animated movie Up.

Just had to show this because it was THE story here, anyway, of the blizzard — other than the blizzard itself.

Being a New Orleans native, I can relate to this Mardi Gras one.

Here are just a few of the various views of peeps from the previous Washington Post Peep Contest. They are all pretty humorous:
