A Shout Out to the Peeps at St. Paul City Hall



This blog will not be weighing in the City Hall vs. The Easter Bunny controversy. Frankly, there's been enough hot air expended on that topic to send a fleet of zeppelins aloft.
However, I do find it noteworthy that Saint Paul city hall has now been invaded by soft, delicious marshallow birds. Roxanne Battle of Kare-11 has the scoop:

"Some city hall employees are upset with that decision and they're staging a 'Peep' protest under the gargantuan statue called The Vision of Peace or is that the Vision of Peeps?
"Peeps, it's pretty funny cause it's peeps instead of peace," laughed attorney and city hall employee Maureen Dolan. She took part in what's being called the Peep Protest, "I brought them in because when I saw them at the store I went spring!"[...]
But today, the Peeps produced chuckles and a desire by some to lighten up the atmosphere, "It saddens me that someone could find offense in the Easter bunny but I think it should be a little bit more tolerant of people," said employee Dan McKinnon."


Ok, how long is it going to take before a band of ravenous potheads facing a killer attack of the munchies decide they really need to take a field trip to city hall? To, uhhhh, check their property records... yeah, that's the ticket.

Did you know that if you put a peep in the microwave it will grow to 12 times its normal size? But as soon as you turn the microwave off, it reduces again and then makes for a very tough, chewy peep. Not that I ever eat them, I'm just saying.

My Albanian great-aunt cooks a wicked Peep Stew. It takes four weeks to make.

If you put two peeps in a microwave, place them a certain distance apart and arm them with toothpicks, they will fight each other as they puff up. I have tried this. It is hilarious. Very low cost entertainment.
