Downward facing peeps!

This has been going on the last three years...HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE?!
You had to know. A newspaper in Washington, DC has had a "Peeps Diarama Contest" since 2007 where thousands of artists create submissions, and they pick out the top 40. Click here for the link to the website, and you can look at the past winners... they are hilarious!!

The Washington Post, the paper that broke the Watergate scandal—you know, the one that brought down a president? Yeah, they also have a Peeps contest every year. And competition is stiff. Or should we say, sticky. You can check out the highly detailed dioramas that incorporate the marshmallow candy here. The winner re-created the house elevated by balloons in the movie "Up." It has to be seen to be believed. Other honorable mentions go to "Super Peepio Brothers" and "Avatar: The 3P Experience." See the entire photo gallery. Our peeps on the Web like their Peeps show: "washington post peeps diorama" searches were "peepular," as were lookups on "peeps dioramas," "peeps diorama contest," and "peeps craft ideas," which all peaked in the Search box. The Post isn't the only Peeps-obsessed paper: According to USA Today, 30 newspapers held Peeps diorama competitions.
