...and after. (Don't mind the dirty microwave, I'm sure yours gets that way sometimes too.) Posted by Hello

The first morning of Amilynne's trip, we were in the hotel and as I showered she was watching CNN. And I heard hysterical laughter--it was the day before Easter, and apparently CNN was showing a story about how to destroy marshmallow Peeps. They dunked them in acid and all but their eyes disintegrated, and a couple of other things, but the kicker was a Peeps war. Stick toothpicks in the chests of two Peeps, set them facing each other in the microwave, turn it on, and let the games begin. As the Peeps expand, the first Peep to poke the other with the toothpick wins. It was a must-duplicate experience. As soon as we got back to my place, we went for Peeps, and as luck would have it, I had actual plastic sword picks that we used. We rigged the Peeps up on a graham cracker and chocolate sled, and held the war. As you can see, the pink Peep won. Too bad not even the title kept it from becoming a delicious s'more.
