Aha! So this is what happened to my annual "Chicky-Pippy" birthday cake, eh?
Every year, since I was a little kid, my mom, Queen of Horse Show Moms, would bake me a chicky-pippy cake: a white cake with coconut icing lined with yellow peeps, like they were nesting around the cake. And this year... NOTHING! No cake, no peeps! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

Stop with icky chicky-pippy cake already! The fact that you actually LIKED the thing instead of just eating it out of daughterly duty AS I WAS FORCED TO DO, is enough to make me think you DESERVED to lose your crown to the frozen north!
If I promise to make you one, do you solemnly vow to A) HUSH ALREADY and B) not force me to eat those icky sticky squishy creatures?? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]
Congratulate me! My CANTER cutie is an honor student at Goofball University!
would it be "pre-meditated" to open the peeps & let them get stale first? When they have just a little crunchier coating? A friend of mine has a horse whose favorite treat is peeps..(it was fun to watch the color of the slobber in his mouth change!!) blue slobber is NOT natural [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Okay, so here's a secret (all Queens have them, you know!). When I first started with my new doctor, he wanted me to try to maintain my weight. And one of the things I was told to eat was marshmallows, because they're high in calories but haven't any fat. So... does this mean peeps are medically indicated? Do I need a prescription for my peeps? Will they be covered by my insurance?
Will I have to go onto the black market to buy my dose of peeps?
See Merry, panhandling for peeps money. See her in a sugar-induced haze, stumbling along skid row, strung out, pink and yellow spittle foaming from her mouth from a recent peeps fix... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]
OMG, I can't stop laughing! My daughter and her cousins have participated in peepocide from an early age. Their grandmother used to give them Peeps in their Easter baskets that she had unwrapped and then loosely rewrapped in Saran Wrap about two weeks earlier. They were petrified Peeps for sure, and all the kids used to throw them at things to see if they could break them...the things, not the Peeps.
By the way, out grocery store has one entire end of the aisle display with nothing but Peeps. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

[img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Merry, I believe Peeps would be covered on your insurance if the prescribing physician sends a letter of medical necessity to your benevolent insurance company!!! Make sure he notes it's for some one who partipates in horse sports [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] How could they refuse? forcing you into peep-seeking behaviours!
I LIVE for Easter time when I can get my hands on those delicious Cadbury Mini Eggs!!! Terrible timing - here I am trying to diet and excercise to look good for summer, and I am forced to gorge myself on bags and bags of Mini Eggs!!
You guys are killing me here! I myself am guilty of "peepocide"~ so I shall start a self-help group called "Peep Killers Anonymous"~ anyone want in??? LOL [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Actually~ I think I may have invented a new form of "peepocide"~ one that does not involve the use of the "Peep Torture Chamber" (or microwave)~ PEEP S'MORES!!!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] Yes! Stick a coat hanger in those little sugary suckers, roast 'em over an open flame~ add Hershey bars & Graham crackers & there you have it! The ultimate in Peep torture! I can hear their little cries now:
