We're weird enough here that I never thought it would be good to be even weirder; so we tend to observe the standard holidays. Smidgen found her Easter basket this morning, and I have video tape of her - eating a hardboiled EGG, which she colored and peeled herself- with the basket full of standard candy stuff right in front of her. Her choice. Of course, once she'd been shown how to peel them, she wanted to peel ALL of them, right now.
In keeping with today's world- where so little makes sense, to anyone- the Washington Post has been running an annual event focused on... Peeps. The ultimate sense-devoid object.
They had 800 entries in their contest this year, the best 37 of which are here: Peeps Show II. I'll try and keep that link working, though the WP has this nasty habit of shifting their URL's.
Just in case THAT isn't a sufficient overload of distilled silliness for you, it turns out the Chicago Tribune is also running their own Peeps contest...
Be peepared for university-strength silliness. And just what DOES it all mean?
