We're trying to be graceful in our epic defeat in the St. Paul Pioneer Press Peeps Diorama Contest, but my friend Denise and I feel totally robbed. I mean how can a diorama of the G.O.Peeps convention lose out to a bunch of peeps doing yoga? What's clever about that? Dear readers, go and judge for yourself. Here is the link to the winners. Here's the link to our entry. If you go to our entry you can give it your own vote and at least if you like it, we'll feel a little less w(p)eepy.
PS: Here's what we included along with our photo submission:
Explanation from creator: We discovered after we built the diorama that taking pictures to fully capture the inside action of the GOPeep Convention and the outside scene with the Peeps Corps and the Protest Peeps, was going to be difficult. So for all of you judges struggling to read the signage, let us provide you with some assistance here: Protester Peep signs read: "No Justice. No Peeps." "Give Peeps a Chance" "Greenpeeps: Save the Whales" "Up with Peeple." and "Hey Hey Ho Ho the GOPeeps Have Got to Go." The Peeps Corps, includes representatives from CNN, KSTPeeps, the Colbert Report, and of course, the Pioneer Press. And, yes, those are secret service peeps watching the protest barricades.
