Peep V.S. Peep...
|So I'm listening to Roe Con yesterday.....and the subject of peeps came up. Tis the season for all the peep goodness and all. They were discussing the 14 year shelf life, the various types.......etc. etc...it was actually got boring, boring that is until....|
A school teacher called in and she mentioned an experiment she told her students about. It seems my friends...that if you take 2 perfectly good peeps, set them on a paper plate about 1 inch (25.4mm for the rest of you) apart, and jab them each with a toothpick......they will swordfight in the microwave.
OMFG!!! I mean how cool is this??? I've put all manner of things in my microwave out of bordome......cd's......old shoes....food even....but never peeps!!! A careful discussion with my lovely wife, and a promise that the home owners insurance was up to date.....she agreed this must be tried. Honestly, I think she just knew it was going to happen anywho,,,,,,,,but she loves me...:)
Ok...so here we have the grudge match set. I've named the yellow one Timmy...manchild has named the pink one Jimmy....I'm betting on the yellow one, I mean c'mon......it's a peep...and the other one is pink...this should be a shoe in!! Just look at Timmy....he's got that angry bunny peep eye thing going on!!
Are you excited...I know I am.......set the microwave to high at 1 minute.....LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!!!
Ironically.....after 10 seconds, they really do look like they are sword fighting. Then they start getting big.....really big, bigger than you would expect a peep could get. Sadly however...there was no satisfying "pop" sound.....but Timmy is the clear loser in this battle as you can see below. There was also surpisingly less smoke than my normal experiment of this nature........perhaps 2 minutes next run...:)
What I learned from this experiment.....
1) Never judge a peep by it's color.
2) Peeps are lousey sword fighters.
3) I should never be allowed to play by myself.
Happy easter goofs and friends!! :)
