Load up your basket

It's time for Easter again. Spring cotton dresses, chocolate bunnies, that green "Easter grass" stuff that gets absolutely everywhere, and colored eggs hidden in the yard. And the best part about Easter: Peeps! Oh, and some stuff about Jesus.

Peeps, while delicious on their own, are also fun. My brother, when he was little, used to call them "Chicken Sugar." An apt description for the Spring snack. One of my favorite activities this time of year is "Peep Wars": put 2 Peeps on a plate, facing each other, arm each of them with a toothpick, and toss them in the microwave on high for a minute. The one that doesn't explode, wins.

But the Washington Post has found a more productive use for Peeps: the Annual Peep Diorama Contest. In which, people use Peeps to depict famous scenes and people. Enjoy!
