Elmer Ellspeep! OMG!! More Magical History Tour!!

I really though this was MY idea last year, but apparently I have been co-opted. The Washington Post has an annual Spring contest involving Peeps, called the Peep Show. The idea is that dioramas are sent in to the Post using peeps to portray artistic, literary, and historic events.

It has been going on for years, so google it up and prepare to laugh until you cry!

Last year the Alexandria Archeological Museum sent in their entry, seen right, in part. This beautiful interpretation of the Death of Ellspeep is exactly what it looks like---

in Peeps!

Red kepi and all!!

This is the third day in a row I have been reduced to tears!


  1. Tears, perhaps...but I'm thinkin' today's tears were due to laughter...

  2. I was totally convulsed with laughter! Everything was SO serious & Civil War martyrish--until THAT!!
