This week marked the start of the season of Lent which means that Easter will soon be upon us. And like many holidays, it does come with it’s share of decorations and hobbies. Every year it’s not unusual for certain venues to stage a peep competition in which people create scenes out of the sugar color coated chicks and rabbits that are unfit for human consumption. Trust me, they are. Yet, this doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with them like these people have. So without further adieu, here are some of my favorite peep dioramas that will give you a smile.
1. See the pink bunny on an afternoon in the art museum.
Seems to be very fond of the expressionists and Van Gogh here.
2. Watch a dramatic reenactment of 12 Angry Peeps.
Watch these twelve angry rabbits decide whether the accused gets smored.
3. Washchickton Crossing the Delaware.
Now this is a historical reenactment we can all get behind.
4. This bunny has done a very bad thing.
Dexter’s dark peepenger has awoken and is out for blood. So this pink bunny totally deserves it.
5. I don’t know how anyone could forget the Muppeeps.
Almost looks like a perfect picture of them. Really it does.
6. Take a sneak peek of the new season of acclaimed PeepBS drama Peepton Abbey.
I love this show and would totally see it all the characters were played by marshmallow bunnies.
7. Even peeps must now pass a security clearance.
And you thought air travel was a bitch these days.
8. Now see your favorite marshmallow peeps from space.
As the late Neil Peepstrong said, “That’s one small step for a peep, one giant leap in peepkind.”
9. Come one, come all to the Peepling Bros. Three Ring Circus.
Of course, nowadays, we don’t have a circuses under the Big Top anymore. And I’m not so sure they treat their elepeeps very well either.
10. Even peeps may not choose the best partners.
Still, this prison peep wedding scene is rather touching if you think about it.
11. When the time is right, Cialis will be there if you suffer from erectile dysfunction.
I may not understand the concept with the bathtubs in the Cialis commercials but this is very clever.
12. Jesus died for our sins and now he is risen.
I had to post one that captures the true spirit of Easter.
13. Watch the cardinals gather in Rome for the Peepal Conclave.
I love how these bunnies look in their red robes and crosses.
14. Because even peeps need a place to hold their bachelor parties.
Gives the concept of “peep show” a whole new meaning doesn’t it? This is pretty funny I had to post it.
15. I present you a dramatic reenactment of the wreck of the Edmund Peepsgerald.
This later inspired a song written by Canadian folk legend Gordon Lightfoot.
16. Watch this dramatic tribute to The Wizard of Peeps.
Now finally an adaptation that won’t traumatize your child.
17. See Moses parting the Red Sea from Cecil Peep. DeMille’s The Ten Commandpeeps.
Always loved it when Charlton Peepton said to Pharaoh, “Let my peeple go!”
18. Watch the Peaple’s enter Peeperland via the Yellow Submarine.
I suppose not everyone has actually seen the film, have they? Still, “We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine.”
19. So this is what bunnies do when they get drunk.
Still, I don’t know if the bunny is completely sober at the karaoke bar.
20. Watch a dramatic reenactment of the Boston Peep Party.
I hope this historical moment didn’t give rise to the Peep Party Caucus centuries later.
21. Who could ever forget Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber on Peep Street.
Seriously, I don’t think the other bunnies might not want to know what’s in Mrs. Lovett’s marshmallow pies.
22. No one could ever resist a diorama of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds with Pippi Hedren.
I don’t like the look of black chicks on the jungle gym. I hope Pippi doesn’t get pecked to death.
23. Of course, even peeps have their reality shows like Jersey Peepe.
Unlike the real show, this isn’t nearly offensive to people in New Jersey. I also love the yellow bunnies’ tans. Thankfully the real show is cancelled.
24. Another hockey night with Pittsburgh Peepguins at the Consol Energy Center.
A Pens fan had to have done this. Of course, I don’t know who the person holding the Crosby’s Crispy sign is rooting for.
25. Nevertheless, we have to acknowledge that some peeples did practice peeple sacrifice.
I’m sure the Pre-Columbian peeples have their own rationale for doing this. Of course, they believed such activities ensured their survival.
26. You should also know that even peeps celebrate Festivus.
Here you see the yellow peeps criticizing each other, the red peeps erecting a bare pole, and the purple peeps preparing the feats of strength.
27. Of course, we can all agree that Harry Peeper is one of the greatest wizards who ever lived.
Now I think the Deathly Mallows is the last book of the series.
28. In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, lived twelve little peeps in two straight lines.
Now I can’t tell which chick is Madeline.
29. Nobody can’t resist the childhood story of Goodnight Peeps.
Almost looks the same as in the Margaret Wise Brown story, which also involved rabbits.
30. Prepare for adventure in Indiana Peep and the Quest for the Golden Bear.
The natives don’t seem too happy with him. Of course, he probably destroyed their entire temple just to obtain that little trinket since “It belongs in a museum.”
31. If there’s something strange in the neighborhood, who ya’ gonna call? Ghost Peepers.
Of course, a peep diorama of Ghostbusters has to include the Stay Puft Marshmallow Guy.
32. Remember the Alamo as done by the peeps.
Of course, this was the battle we lost Davy Chickett and James Bowpeep who invented his big ass knife.
33. Somehow peeps don’t seem to care for Chick-Fil-A for some reason.
Rather these chicks may think it’s better you eat at Steak n’ Shake.
34. It’s a fight to the death when Katniss reaches the Cornucopia.
You know this is about the Hunger Games. And no, the Cornucopia didn’t look like that in the book or the movie. Still, it’s pretty funny.
35. The Romneys might want to consider a dog kennel when they go on a family vacation.
I may think Romney is a steaming turd of a human being but I love this diorama. I especially like the dog on the roof of the car.
36. A peep show wouldn’t be complete without a US Civil War reenactment of some sort.
This diorama depicts a scene from 1861 Alexandria, Virginia which shows the deaths of Col. Elmer Ellsworth and Secessionist James Jackson at the Marshall House. These were said to be the first deaths in the US Civil War.
37. Occupy Peep Street: We are the 99%.
Sometimes you can only piss off a peep so far before they snap. Of course, this represents a whole generation screwed over by Wall Street.
38. Who could ever forget the hardships faced by the Joad family in The Peeps of Wrath by John Steinbeck?
Of course, this is the scene where they bury the old grandpa in Oklahoma. Things don’t get much better for them in California though.
39. Because even peeps can get crazy at parties.
I don’t like The Girls Gone Wild series because of how it treats its subjects. However, I think this is a clever parody.
40. You better watch out for Peepzilla.
As if the peeple of Tokyo hadn’t been through enough giant monsters.
41. Even peeps love to have a good time at Mardi Gras.
Well, I had to post a diorama for Mardi Gras somewhere. I mean it’s the start of Lent here.
42. Who can ever forget this iconic scene from Star Peep: The Original Series.
Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Star Peep Enterprise. It’s mission: to seek out new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no peep has gone before.
43. A rendition of the iconic Nightpeeps by Edward Hopper.
They seem so friendly with each other do they?
44. Of course, every dinner has to have it’s share of crashers, even a White House state dinner.
Still, its cuter than the real thing. And the White House looks as resplendent in the background.
45. No Disney trip would be complete with out It’s a Small World ride in the Magic Kingdom.
Believe me, this diorama is much less creepy than the real thing.
46. I don’t think protesting the winter weather is going to help, peeps.
Still makes a good diorama though.
47. Oh, look, Sergeant Peeper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
So let me introduce to you, the one and only Billy Shears, and Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
48. Here’s a rendition of St. Bunidickt at the beach.
For those at Saint Vincent College, this is for you.
49. Even for peeps, it’s fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
Courtesy of The Village Peeple. Love their outfits.
50. Seems that these bunnies don’t like figs for some reason.
I mean they’re burning fig newtons for crying out loud.
