Happy 60th birthday to Peeps!

I'd never encountered Peeps until I came to live in the USA.  Now they're so much a part of Lent and Easter that I hardly notice them, except to eat some now and again.  (A friend feeds Peeps to her horse as a treat - he's apparently wild about them - so she has a great time after Easter buying up dozens and dozens of boxes of Peeps at the post-season sales.)

It seems that this year marks the 60th anniversary of Peeps.  Here's a video report for the occasion.

I hate marshmallows, so Peeps are safe from me.
