What is it about sugary-sweet marshmallow Peeps that makes us want to violate them, dress up them up and take pictures?
Peeps have used their mind-numbing cuteness to take over the Internet with over 200 Web sites, as well as Peeps-diorama photo contests from major media outlets like The Seattle Times and The Washington Post. They have been the best-selling non-chocolate Easter candy for a decade, and the amount of Peeps that will be eaten this year, if lined up, would circle the globe.
Behold the chameleon-like, transcendent power of Peeps. They make Meryl Streep look like an amateur.
