    Default Public Service Announcement from Ted the Peep 'Ho

    Please have your humans go out to Tarzhay, CVS, Rite Aid, the Dollar Store, your local supermarket.

    Peeps, peppermint candies and canes and sticks, and Palmers marshmallow pops should all be on sale. Also please check out the Hershey's kisses that are really candy cane bits (thank you, TbBlitz!).

    If your human is fast on the inside (that's track parlance) you can score peppermint star peeps for 25 cents.

    Ted, I think Peeps needs to put your pic on the packaging or you should be their sales rep. They could pay you in Peeps I will hurry out and get Duncan some more Peeps.

    Great idea! Ted's sold more peeps this Christmas Season that they've ever sold before. Hmmm, maybe a good company to buy stock in?

    You know, Ted, people on this BB say:

    Ted's a Peep Ho cause he never eats anything good,
    Ted's a Peep Ho cause he never eats grain like he should,
    Well just because Ted doesn't eat hay, like every other horse does,
    That's no reason why Ted can't be Coth BB "Person of the Year"

    Peeps are always what he needs,
    He eats more sugar than the bees,
    Oh Ted is a Peep Ho, Ho HO HO,
    Ted is Peep Ho, Ho HO HO, you seeeeeee.

    See the way he trots down the street,
    Green and yellow marshmallow stuck to his feet,
    Ted's the guy who always gives,
    To help rescues help horses live,
    Just because of that horses neigh, neigh,

    Ted's a Peep Ho and he'll be "Person of the Year"
    Ted's a Peep Ho with hypocookieemia, we fear,
    Oh Ted's a Peep Ho, ho ho ho,
    Ted's a Peep Ho, ho ho ho, you see.

    Ted I was already at the Family Dollar yesterday and bought all 33 of their left over candy cane sticks (the big ones that I can't figure you could do anything with but feed them to your horse). 25 cents each!

    My mom was mad because at the CVS they were only half price and SIXTY FIVE CENTS and she said that was a rip off. But she bought them anyway.

    Last year she bought about 20 Palmer's big marshmallow snowman and Santa Clauses for 25 cents each. They are not peeps but they are good too. The boxes of stick peppermints are also good.

    Ted!! I was at Tarzhay (? Tarjay?) yesterday and I spied the peppermint peeps at 50% off. Not quite 25 cents but pretty close. I also found (brace yourself) sugar cubes decorated with icing to look like little teeny Christmas presents. I could not resist. I purchased a pack of each. My mother thinks I have lost my mind because I, uh, dont actually have an equine in my life right now. And I told her they werent for me.

    I have not 100% decided what to do with them but I keep asking myself WWTD (what would ted do). I decided that you would like me to share them with those heese that have no peeps and fancy sugar cubes. I will let you know when I decide 100% what to do.
    There are stars in the Southern sky and if ever you decide you should go there is a taste of time sweetened honey.

    I WOULD like you to share them with heese that have no peeps. We have lots of addresses for heese at rescues. We know one in Florida, too!

    Of course these things do taste awful good and I know when you are studying you need a lot of sugar to make your brain work. That is what my mom says. Maybe that is why I am so smart, because I eat a lot of peeps.

    Dear Ted,
    Our mom has a good supply of candycanes, but it takes her a long long time to unwrap them with her chubby human fingers. Like Bluey's horse, we dance around and paw the ground and shake our heads to encourage her. Any other advice?

    My boy, Dusty, wanted me to answer this one for you, since he is blind I will type what he tells me:

    "Tell your hooman friends to grasp the small peppermint candy cane by the wrapper at the top of the curve, let the fingers just lightly touch this top of the cane, (also have the bottom of the cane touching the bottom of the plastic wrapper) now pinch your fingers on the curved top and the cane bottom shoots right out of the bottom of the wrapper! You can open about one per second, shooting them out on the table. My hooman picked this up from me real fast just from my verbal instructions. She also knows I am impatient and stomp my feet and toss my head until I get one so she does it quick now, I have her trained real nice.

    I don't have opposable thumbs so I can't do the peppermint squeeze, l so I do have to rely on her to help."

    Well, Dusty hopes this helps you.
    I want a signature but I have nothing original to say except: "STHU and RIDE!!!

    That is wonderful advice. I will alert my mom to this thread. She has enough trouble opening the palmers marshmallow ones.

    I love those! What area of Target did you find them in? With the Christmas candy?
