Peep Survival Tests —not just for Easter anymore (Or, I remember [Bunnies] on Fire)

In 1953, it took 27 hours to create one Marshmallow Peep. Today, it takes six minutes.

Remember when Peeps were only around for Easter, only yellow, and only chicks or bunnies?

Now there are Peeps for every season in a pastel rainbow of colors. Mirandala first sent me this link a few years ago, and, lucky for us, the site has never done a 404. The tests performed on those brave little bunnies a few years ago still apply. Be sure to check out Laser Exposure Endurance, Slow Application of Heat Test, Flame Tolerance Test, The Hottub Test, Electrocution Tolerance, The Coyote Test, Oxygen Deprivation Test and Radiation Tolerance Test.

    This is still one of my favorite sites on the internet. And don’t forget The Bunnies Strike Back

    The best use of peeps I ever saw was about 4 years ago at Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.

    They used them as puppets to tell the story of Moses parting the Red Sea. “Let my peeps go!”

    They’re doing groundbreaking work over at Peep Research. The Medical Miracle page shouldn’t be missed.
