We Are NOT Alone...the Escape & Spread of the Infamous Easter Peeps®...
Unlike the short lifespan of the chocolate Easter Bunny the Easter Peeps® stays around longer brightening our lives with their colorful sparkly sugar coating and bright personalities. Like the chocolate bunny the Peeps® were designed as an Easter candy but they are not being eaten as fast as they are produced and this overpopulation of Peeps® has evolved into a phenomena; they are escaping into the real world and going wild! With the advent of cheap digital photography that is easily communicable their crazy escapades around the globe are being captured digitally and via the internet are becoming known to us all. The “Peeps Contest” is a fast growing trend where photographs of the Peeps® provide rewards for those judged as the best entries by certain media giants; the Washington Post is the most famous but each year there are more and more, the Denver Post has Peeps® contests, and Chicago Tribune too. This invasion of our world by the Peeps® has gotten out of control, Blog after blog after blog collect their favorites and the best artworks fame is spread; some talented escaped Peeps are making and even staring in their own Hollywood style action movies now like “Peep Wars.”Which appears like a copyright infringement and wanabe Spielberg’s “Star Wars”.
