A Peep Tragedy April 24

Tension has been high among the Peeps after the Peep-lette and the "accident" yesterday in which Pink Peep was crushed. Purple Peep snuck out of the house in an attempt to relax with a cigarette. She got more than she anticipated - much, much more - and the consequences of her actions would reverberate throughout Peepdom.

A warning. The following photographs may not be suitable for those with an aversion to melted marshmallow.

For Chris:

In spite of their best efforts, White and Blue Peep could not save Purple from this tragedy.

Nikon D70
1/3200s f/4.5 at 70.0mm full exif

other sizes: small medium large auto

Completely hysterical!

Who can resist Peeps at 25 cents a box! It was one of those I-know-I'll-find-something-to-do-with-these kind of purchase (and yeah, it was from Target). Life with my Peeps has been fun to do - and it's not over yet. :)

I didn't realize people had a sense of humor anymore...and a great one, at that! These are hilarious. Did you just start them because TARGET had a close-out on all of their Peeps after Easter?

Tooo right Donna, don't interfere with nature. Besides if they are going to smoke they should take everything coming to them.

As a serious photojournalist, Jeremy, I have been trained to take a step back while working and not let my emotions take over. I admit, in this case, I struggled - very, very hard - forcing myself to not sing Kumbaya or other campfire songs as the smell of burning marshmallow assailed me. Perverted and sick? I think not. Just doing my job.

And what, you allow all of this to happen? You sit there glibly with your camera just recording it all like some PHOTO JOURNALIST?!?!? Did you ever think to maybe step in and prevent this disaster?

And he thought the filter made smoking safer...

Despite being a smoker myself, I would caution all those peeps wanting to try the evil cancer sticks to think again. Thanks so much for this valuable public service.
