New York Times Covers Important Peeps Inquiry

It looks like the Peeps o’Kenyon (not to be confused with the PEEPS o’Gambier) are getting national news coverage!

The New York Times blog wants to know “When is a Peep not a Peep?” Big question, NY Times blog. Did you  try asking the Turtles?  They’ll know when a non-Peep officially becomes a Peep.

In her investigative report, Amy Kellner cites the Peeps experience of Times photographer Nikolas Koenig. Koenig said that after observing Peeps in action, “he was completely coated in a fine, crystalline sugar mist.” This certainly sounds like an authentic Peeps experience to me.

On the personality of those she was investigating, Kellner observes, “there’s something poignant about these rejected, misfit Peeps.” Spot on! I think Kellner has actually found herself some real, live, Deb Ball hosting Peeps.

But alas, it only looks like the Peeps o’Kenyon are getting national news coverage. They aren’t, actually. This NY Times blog post is about the Peeps made out of marshmallow, not the Peeps who steal fanny packs from Zeta pledges. It certainly had me fooled.

  4. yo, ‘outraged,’ this is a peaceful, democratic forum. we believe in great music, cool people, fun times, okay? take it down a notch, or suffur the consequences. k?

  5. ‘Hi I’m a Peep’ is CLEARLY an irony suicide bomber. NO peep would post any sort of message w/o a link to a cool youtube.

  6. Ebert, nah. If only there was some sort of kenyon-specific web-zine that talked about how unfair it is to get a bad lottery number.
