Happy Friday!

Another Friday has rolled around and I'm touching base with all my peeps...

 This was going to be just a usual post to let you know what is going on in my part of the world, but when I Googled "Peeps" I got over 45 million results. Yes you read that right, 45 million results for the word Peeps. This bears more research.

Those little tasty bits of marshmallow, that so many of us love have a huge cult following.  They have their own Wikipedia page, which clues us into their history and other various reference links.

They have their own webpage which seems to be geared to the younger set.  With lots of fun things to do, including a fan club and recipes for various holiday themed peeps.

There is a research page dedicated to the little  bits of fluff, with research having been done as to the longevity of the species, as well as various results from experiments being conducted regarding the destruction of these critters.

They have their own Facebook page, there is even a diorama contest, where there are entries with peeps placed in everyday settings, such as this...

Yes, you are seeing this correctly.  Pole dancing Bunny Peeps, being ogled by overweight business men who should be at home with their families.  Tsk, Tsk.

I have said for a long time that everyone has an artistic streak in them, and the fascination with Peeps seems to reinforce that thought.  Life can get tedious and sometimes it can get downright mean for some folks, so if playing with sticky marshmallow candies helps them temporarily lose the heavy thoughts that have them bogged down, then I say "go for it".  I would like to remind folks that moderation is the key here, as with so many fun things, don't let your love for peeps take over your life.

Personally, I don't eat Peeps, they creep me out.  When a friend at work gave me one, instead of eating it, I promptly placed it into the mouth of the baby alligator head that I kept on my desk. Said alligator head was presented to me by that this same friend as a souvenir from his Florida vacation.  Why I keep  calling this person "friend" is beyond me, he was a bit funny turned, to be sure.

But, in any event, I can no longer recall what today's post was going to be about, but here I am saying have a good weekend and stay creative...(and  cool).

Oh the pole dancing bunnies and the overweight chick businessmen just do it for me! That is SO funny! You have made my day! What does it say about YOU that you put the peep into the alligator's mouth, huh?? June is having an odd effect on us all apparently...we just had a pool removed and NOW I want to go swimming! I am really not mentally healthy sometimes...but then I AM one of yourr family members....however, I am willing to eat the peeps!

I was never a Peep eater either. (Try saying that three times)

Pole dancing Peeps? I guess it could be worse. (Or could it?)

Yesterday, I was reading the online news and read Twitter was down and people completely freaked out and panicked. Someone commented "Twitters broke, my life has no meaning anymore."
Really? I think this person should be introduced to "Peeping," "Peepering" or whatever you want to call it.
"Life does has meaning with Peeps." (That would make a great greeting card)

:> )

I love calling my friends and family "peeps". I never heard of the Peep creating obsession before. Thanks for posting and I will have to check out their fb page.
