has anyone else seen/loved this?

Thursday, April 21, 2011

when my friend laura emailed me an article about the 2011 Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest, i didn’t think much of it.  i glanced through it and thought, “that’s cute” and then went to bed.  in the morning, however, i gave the photos a more thorough look-over and decided that this contest is one of the cutest things i’ve ever seen.  i’ve always hated peeps but now, after seeing these photos, i think i’m kind of obsessed with them (just as long as i don’t have to eat them).  mostly, i’m just amazed at how creative people are.  and since tomorrow is good friday, i figured today was an appropriate time as ever to share it here.  hope you enjoy!

the winner (and my top 10 favorite finalists):

Contest winner: “Chilean CoPeepapo Mine Rescue” b2

eggs031.  “TSA Agents Get a Peep Show”weekends 

2.  “Peeps in Purgatory” (the peep skeletons get me every time)5

3.  “Vincent Van Peep’s Starry Starry Night” (to be honest, i just like this one because the name ‘Vincent Van Peep’ makes me laugh!)6

4.  “Inpeeption” (this one is simple but so clever nonetheless…..and, like #3, the name ‘Inpeeption’ is so hilarious to me…)

66

5. “The King’s Peep” (again, can’t…get over….the title…)cobblestones 6.“Black Peep” (this one is hard to see but i think that’s the mattress on the left and i want to say there’s a blood-covered peep laying on it….having seen the movie, i’m laughing out loud.)

  hp   

7.  “The Very Hungry Catpeepillar”

  12

8. "Apple's iPeep Release in Georgetown"

 13

9.  “The Peepstones” 14             10.  “Peeperazzi” (this parody of lady gaga’s grammy entrance is hysterical…who would ever think to recreate this with peeps?  unbelievable.)

15

11.  "Peepie Sheen Receives His Daily Transfusion of Fresh Tiger Blood" (okay, i meant to choose only my top 10 but this one is, hands down, the funniest title of the bunch…i was laughing out loud in the teacher’s lounge saying, “peepie sheen!!”  but then again i was also saying that for “the peepstones!! the very hungry catpeepillar!  inpeeption! the king’s peep!”….)

Dylan Fitzgerald said...

I thought that the "Very Hungry Catpeepillar" should've been "Very Hungry Peeperpiller" because that's more fun to say :) The Chilean mine rescue one I think leaves all the rest behind, if only because of the fighting peep mistresses in the lower left.

Oh my gosh these are hysterical! I can't believe they don't have Qdoba in Europe, that is a tragedy! Just Go With It is such an awesome movie, I'm pretty sure I'll even buy it when it comes out on DVD! Enjoy It!

jcondc said...

These are all soooo cute! I love to eat peeps, and I love to look at them in costume/scenarios. I just realized if peeps were just boring circle shapes in dull colors I probably would not like them at all.

Amelia said...

hahah this is too much. i actually hate peeps because i was once forced to eat an entire sleeve of them in 5 minutes. shivers.
