Happy Easter

This is just too cute!

It's a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek scientific exploration of the ubiquitous Easter treat, Marshmallow Peeps. As it happens, I have three packages of them to enjoy once Passover is over. Unfortunately, after perusing this site I may not in good conscience be able to eat them.

My favorite line on the whole site was this, in the section on "Solubility Testing":
Given enough time, the proper resources, and access to some really toxic stuff, one can probably dissolve just about anything except Peep eyes.
Happy Easter, everyone.

Peeps. Are. Vile.

No really. The devil himself couldn't concoct a more abhorrent... thing if his life depended on it.

Except maybe tapioca. Hmm. That's a close one.

But they're great actors! See, Peeps do Romeo and Juliet!

In physics class in high school, we had the Annual Peep Off every year around Easter. The teacher would place a peep inside a container and turn the inside into a vacuum. The peep would explode, we would laugh, then we'd do it all again. Actually, that doesn't say anything good about my psyche, does it?

I'm slowing reading through, and enjoying your archives. You really have to try nuking a peep. It's worth the sacrifice, as you'd have a hard time eating it afterwards. The results are extraordinary.
