Now those are some talented folks.

So, are you guys fans of fresh or crunchy peeps. I have a friend whose husband used a fork to poke holes in the Peeps wrappers to allow them to dry out faster because he liked 'em crunchy.

I haven't tried then for years - I used to prefer them chewy but not crunchy. Guess that means I like them stale?

Wrapped in bacon and deep-fried.

Okay, I'm kidding. I prefer them fresh.

Frozen, eh? I don't think I ever tried them that way.

The folks at Peep Research dotOrg have done some work with super-chilled Peeps and hammers:

I don't what PETA's take is on conducting experiments on innocent Peeps . . . I suppose they are again' it. Myself, I don't have a problem with it, the means do seem to justify the ends.

We use to put them in the microwave to make them soft and extra chewy. It was fun to watch them blow up like a balloon.

I didn't realize there is a whole subculture out there devoted to Peeps - here's a sample of what I found with a quick search:

Peeps Flash Game

Peeps Haiku (that's probably taking it one step too far)
http://www.peephaiku.com/

DIY Peeps - make your own, or is that cheating?

National Geographic is sponsoring a Peeps photo contest - apparently there's still time to submit entries.

Personally, I don't much like them... but they are a great source of amusement. My dad taught me all about the art of Peep Jousting!

I don't like peeps either...they're too marshmallowy...yuck. But, I loved the "Peep" show...I thought the Plumbers crack one was hillarious.

>>Like eating dyed sugary sand.

That's pretty much the way I remember them . . . probably explains why people find so many uses for Peeps other than eating them : -)

I am brain dead after eating about 2 doz peeps today but as a Rice University grad recall there was once a student featured peeps website. Some engineers tooks shots at peeps in various ways -- microwave, kyrogenics, etc....it was pretty interesting, but I am not sure if still accessible from the rice website. www.rice.edu

>I am brain dead

Thank you for proving that no brain activity is required for posting on internet message boards . I had always suspected it.
