Calculating the Speed of Light Using a Microwave and PEEPS (or other melty things) from National Geographic's Education Blog and NPR's Skunk Bear videos (showing some history of calculating the speed of light... with peeps as historical scientists, of course)

At last, the moment has arrived. At this writing, the trial of Carol Burdick, who says she was evicted from her apartment for putting a Peeps display over her door to celebrate Easter 2009, is underway. [more inside]

Peeps Show. The Washington post was expecting a dozen or so entrants for the first-ever Peeps Diorama Contest. They got somewhere north of 350 from across the world. Photos.
Consider the Marshmallow, and it’s offspring the Peep. The marshmallow is said to have originated in Egypt as honey-based candy flavored and thickened with the sap of the root of the Marsh-Mallow plant. Recently marshmallow have caused not one, but two deaths by suffocation from playing Chubby Bunny. Clearly this is retaliation from the bunny-like Peep, for the atrocities committed upon them in the name of research and narrative! Will we resort to, guns to solve the struggle? Or just give in and continue our primative and snooty and cutsey and basic way of flaming, making and eating the confectionary?
An Easter Turducken . . . made of Peeps. This follows in a long line of MeFi Peeps posts and also offers something to do with a Cadbury Creame Egg other than bake a cake.
Cooking with Peeps. How to bake, fry and grill the sugary marshmallow critters. Also: main dish recipes and salads. When you make Waldorf salad with Peeps, remember they are "best made with pink or yellow peeps. Lavender ones make the salad grayish."

Studious peeps. A comprehensive and well documented look at the study habits and research practices of marshmallow Peeps. "Our observations indicated that it was virtually impossible for Peeps to remove items from the upper shelves of the library stacks." Conclusion: Marshmallow Peeps have no business doing research at the university level.
Sure, sex and drugs have been associated with rock & roll from its very beginnings. But what about finely granulated sugar? See defining moments in the history of rock and roll, as re-enacted by marshmallow peeps. swiped from large hearted boy
Peeps! All about peeps! So sweet and chewy and cute all over. Apparently, they're not just for Easter anymore. They've come a long way since I got the little yellow guys in my Easter basket as a kid, apparently. I had no idea this company had gotten so far flung in its enterprise.
One Peep to rule them all, and in the darkness eat them. It's not Friday, but any day is a good day to see "Lord of The Rings" executed with marshmallow peeps. There's also a "PeepHenge" on the site...mmmmmmm, PeepHenge. (God bless Bifurcated Rivets.)
Leonard Pinth-Garnell wishes he had it so bad. Or, if a reinterpretation of modern fare isn't your bag, baby, try this retelling of a timeless classic. (Just don't you go talkin' trash 'bout my peeps!)
"I buy as many as I can. I freeze them and we eat them all year round,'' she said. Gross. More news on America's... no... the WORLD'S... favorite (cough, cough) treat.
Just in time for the easter candyfest. I wonder how many people actually enjoy peeps.
Ah, Peeps, those resilient little birds. This is a neat site on basic Peep science.
