De rerum peepura

It is that happiest time of year: amidst the blizzards and snowdrifts, the good folk at the Washington Post see a glimpse of springtime at the end of the tunnel of winter, and make their annual call for the Peeps Diorama contest.

And, bless 'em, they reminded me of last year's finalists in the process.  Take a look at the link for a glimpse of all things peepish.   My favorites?

  • A UFO landing entitled "The Day the Earth Stood Peeped."
  • "Relitivipeep," which stages one of Escher's famous staircase-laden worlds
  • ...and the final, dystopian diorama, in which factory peeps on an assembly line fill box after box with little marshmallow "peeple."
