The revenge of the Peeps
when peeps attack
Ya see that? That is what happens when one ends up at the drugstore just days after Easter. When they have all their Easter merchandise on clearance and the kid is with you. You end up buying stuff that you wouldn't have – such as this Peep that's big enough to be creepy. The Plush Peep is a little scary. I admit I worry mostly because there may very well be a Peep conspiracy against me having called them Vile Bastards and all. I might be paranoid… however; they do say “just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t really after you”, right? So, there ya have it.
The kid thinks this Plush Peep beanie is fantastic. He plays catch with the Peep, carries the Peep around... he even started to call the Peep "Peep-y". My husband quickly put a stop to that by saying, "You're calling it pee-pee? No."
Here's a comparison shot of Plush Peep vs. Edible Marshmallow Peep. I can assure you that Marshmallow Peep was not harmed during the photo shoot. Sadly enough, however, Marshmallow Peep did meet a rather quick and I’m sure painful demise afterward. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but I did spot some pretty damming evidence on the kiddo's shirt and face. Yellow sugar crystals… hum…..
