Peep Show

[Shaking head]

Wayle, Peeps gotta do what Peeps gotsta do.


Don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll come around by Easter Sunday, Carrie L. and Katie A.

[We’re not alone in this, y’all… – Ed.]
[UPDATE — This peep diorama was created in April of 2007 by Kate Koop of Crosby, MN.  Thanks for sourcing this image, Cheryl! – Ed.]



  1. Peep show!

  2. mmm, I love me some peeps 🙂

  3. LOLOL

  4. You gotta give props to yer peeps.

  5. Who comes up with these things????????????

  6. Does that peep on the very left have 2 eyes on one side of its head? Oh well, all peeps need lovin!

  7. Margaret says:

    A co-worker sent this to me last week. Good times.

    Is it just me or did they make the furniture from Starburst candy?

  8. cronite5 says:

    only one word for this “oy”

  9. Scandalous! I love it.

  10. Super cute!!

  11. 😦 huh???

    wanders off muttering… confused

  12. Hehehe, That’s one peep show I can get into!

  13. DoodleyDog says:

    PEEP show!!!! So funny I spit soda all over my screen!!!

    Such mashmallowy depravity!


  14. LOL!!! This is brilliant!!!

  15. This was from a contest held by the Washington Post last year. You can see tons more at:

  16. Michelle says:


  17. Candy heaven…I think it’s all made of candy. 🙂 I like the chocolate looking stage…I like chocolate

  18. So where are the little tassle things?


  19. Also, you may be more right than you think, Cauliflower. The beer cans and furniture look like chewy gummies.

  20. Five stars!

  21. I think that I’ve seen this diorama before, but it had Barbie’s and little trolls.

    Not figuratively, literally.

    Anyway, I feel a craving for pudding coming on.

  22. I have never laughed so hard from a CO post. You just made my entire day.

    Yup, still laughing 5 minutes later…

  23. Mmm…Sacrilicious… makes a kid look to the Easter

  24. It’s the tiiiiny little dollar bills that get to me — especially the ones tucked so carefully into the peeps’ thongs.

    I’ll never look at peeps the same way again.

  25. Raemie L. says:

    Oh, mah, gah. I was only going to lurk right now, but now I ‘gotsta’ comment, even if it’s just to say, “it’s too moishe!”. XD

  26. Shameless exploitation of innocent sugar coated marshmallow candy! What if their mothers see this?

  27. eikoleigh says:

    omg – lol!!

  28. Raemie L. says:

    I followed the link Sommer C. gave (Mar 19, 2008 at 10:07 PM), and whoa, nice and funny/disturbing dioramas (from Semi-finalists and Finalists, of course). And whatta way to promote Peeps Marshmallows. : P

  29. Raemie L. says:

    @Yubishines: Maybe pasties instead of tassels? *coughs* No, no tassels on the curtains, that is! (And otherwise, in their Easter Day suits.) If the furniture is made of Starbursts candy and the stage is made of chocolate, would the curtains be made of Red Vine candy? Eep, tiny mojitos?

  30. OMG! One of the yellow ones has a ciggy in his mouth!!


  31. Staticgirl says:

    That is so wrong and so right. Me confuzzled. 😀

  32. Hahahahaha I LOVE IT! PEEP show?! Puns are awesome.

  33. Nuff, nuff, nuff!!! 😉

    This is really good and cute, in a “wrong” kinda way!

  34. tesstricks says:

    The far left bunny looks like she’s crying. heehee


    That is all. 🙂

  36. metsakins says:

    I’ve seen this several times, but it always gets a chuckle out of me, (I know, I’m depraved). The tiny dollar bills! that slays me.

  37. it was the tiny pasties that got me!

  38. i KNEW there had to be skeletons even in a Peeps closet!!!!

    lol – hilarious AND cute. my fav combo.

  39. This has got to be my favorite picture! How inventive & funny hahaha

  40. Check out my blog – my husband made a peep show cake based on this picture. Only peep bunnies don’t dance for money, guys – they dance for jelly bellies!!!

  41. AliceTanzer says:

    The pole is a gray crayola colored pencil. You can see the edge of the shiny gold logo. Whoever did this is really inventive, and I’m so emailing this to my mother on easter.

  42. Shouldn’t the chicks be the ones on stage??

  43. Brilliant! SuSea, those chicks are kinda FAT.


  44. Courtney says:

    This is hilarious! The other peep dioramas for the Washington Post contest were great. I think my favorite is the one of the Metro stop during rush hour.

  45. Here’s a shout out to my Peeps…

  46. …shouldn’t the chics be on stage 😛

  47. AuntieMame says:

    Peeps pasties! And they have dollar bills in their g-strings! *snort*

    But who owns the strip joint? Ivan the Terrible? Do you get more tips if you impale yourself?

  48. Good greif I thought I had gone to wrong web page for a second…. just kidding

    between the funny money and the pole dancer I cannot decide which part makes me laugh the hardest….

  49. Dolla Dolla Bill Ya’ll!

  50. Oh, how I love them peeps. What fond, sugar-soaked memories they bring back to me of my fundy Baptist Easters of yore… wait a sec – those peeps are behaving in a sinful and licentious manner…little scamps! For more peep-related fun, you must check out the institute of peep research (if already noted, sorry!) here:

  51. Awesome! I loves me some peep dioramas. This one’s gorgeous. Now I wanna ditch my work and make one of my own… but I don’t think we have peeps here in Canada.

    Thanks for the WAPO link, Sommer. Some awesome peep-o-ramas there, but I didn’t see this one among them. I did, however, fall in love with the PEEP-ing Tom scene. OMG the eyes!!

    Also, scrapnknit, your husband RAWKS.

    Mae, “sacrilicious” is sooo– entering my vocabulary.

    LOL at all you peeps.

  52. There’s a whole thing on Washington Post with these pics.
    And this video I just found is a really funny Peep-themed

  53. Hey Cath, I’m from Canada too and I saw Peeps for sale at Walmart. Just in case you really do want to make your own diorama. 😉

  54. kestrien says:

    I made Peep rice krispie treats for the second year in a row! So sugary your teeth practically dissolve. Happy spring, everybody.

  55. okay .. I had no idea what to expect from the title, but man, this is so much better than anything I COULD have imagined 😀 Well done~ And those are some pretty awesome tiny dollar bills.

  56. This is just so wrong, on every level.

  57. Interpeepsies snorgling!

  58. Licorice's Mommy says:

    Giggle- the sugar and the sugar shake!!
    I’m from Canada too and I get my Peeps from Shoppers Drug Mart… gonna go get some and let loose the imagination… hmmm…

  59. Kiragirl says:

    I thought tomorrow was Good Friday, no way—it’s BAD friday, get down and boogie my peeps.

  60. Birdcage says:

    I am relatively new to this site and I have to say ….. peeps are strange, when you’re a stranger …..

  61. Caturday says:

    That is sooooo cute !! lol

  62. Kiragirl says:

    If we could have only done dioramas this THIS in 5th grade it wouldn’t have been so tortuous.

  63. Juniper Jupiter says:

    That was blatantly stolen from Cheezburger!! I saw that a couple of days ago!! But it’s still funny! XD!!

  64. Catsquatch says:


  65. Ah, Birdcage, you’ll fit in around here just fine.

  66. Juniper — coupla points here…
    1) it’s not FROM teh Cheez, they just posted it before we did; it’s most likely from the Washington Post (though I haven’t been able to find this *specific* photo… outtake?)
    2) you might wanna try clicking the link at the bottom of the post, you know, the one that says “We’re not alone” in [brackets]

  67. i like how they had to make legs on the bunnys so they could put garters on them!

  68. love this. actually, it’s from The Pioneer Press peep diorama contest from last year.

  69. i have never seen a religious holiday include a stripper pole before!

  70. Cheryl — nicely done! Good eye!!
    (I should’ve been able to spot that myself, dang it… I live in Eagan!)

  71. Just shocking! Soft porn on the internet! (sorry, I had to say it).

  72. BBoss — just wait till they get stale.

  73. warrior rabbit says:

    Theo, ICHC commenters said it was from the Chicago Tribune.,1,6016770.ugcphotogallery

  74. Warrior — it took some doing, because that link doesn’t totally work, but I was able to find the photo on the Chicago Tribune site… without any info attached. That set of slides appears to be a semi-public “upload your own peep photo” page. Close, but no pink marshmallow cigar.

    The Pioneer Press link does appear to have the original, with proper credit & everything.

  75. Cat-man-do says:

    Shouldn’t it have been the chicks on the pole?

  76. Hey, it’s hard out there for a peep! Peepin’ ain’t easy!

  77. Juniper Jupiter says:

    I did, Theo! I’m just play-nuffin’! ‘Sides ICHC is hardly pimped out here anymore! GAHD! You can be such a neenerhead!:P Much love, bro!

  78. …”neenerhead” ??

  79. Anasztaizia says:

    “Just shocking! Soft porn on the internet! (sorry, I had to say it).

    bboss | Mar 20, 2008 at 11:39 AM “

    That gave me a hearty chuckle, hahahaha!

    This post reminds me, I need to go buy peeps for our Easter traditionz – Peep JOUSTING! =D

  80. Anasztaizia says:

    Btw – has anyone looked around on the Peepresearch site metioned above? The solubility test results are a little disturbing!

  81. yankeebird says:

    Tesstricks, that makes me think of a line from a Bloodhound Gang song: “a lapdance is so much better when the stripper is crying”.

  82. gravyboat says:

    As a stripper, I get a big kick out of this picture.

  83. Are the chairs even made of Starburst? seriously? haha…

  84. tesstricks says:

    Yeah, schadenfreude really helps me shell out the singles. 😛

  85. Juniper Jupiter says:

    Tsk, tsk, Theo! You don’t remember this Garfield strip?
    Neenerhead! 😛

  86. I’m shocked that no one else finds this sad or offensive.

  87. I’m shocked that no one called me on my “pink marshmallow cigar” crack.

  88. Furbabies says:

    I am shocked that anyone could think this was anything but cute. It’s only candy! Loosen up Kim. You’re wound too tight.

  89. bcteagirl says:

    I am shocked it took so long for kim to show up! 😛

  90. Oh that is hilarious!! I started laughing and couldn’t stop!!

  91. Kaitou Juliet says:

    So wrong–so very, very wrong–but so funny!

  92. Thanks, dear editors, for adding my blog URL earlier, and cath, you’re right – my DH RAWKS! He was so cute painting pasties and “patches” on all the little bunnies, and struggled to make the pretzel pole support the dancer’s weight. And the substitution of jelly beans for dollars is totally inspired. What else would Peep show dancers dance for?

    Happiest Easters and / or Passover and / or spring rites of your choice to all!

  93. mom2twinzz says:

    The COlumbus Dispatch in Columbus Ohio just announced the winners Friday in their Pimp your Peeps contest. The winner was a diarama of Harry Potter. The other Entries can be found here.

  94. When good peeps go bad!!!
    Loves it!

  95. “Sacrilicious” is from the Simpsons.
