Thems My Peeps! Put only farm-fresh, free-range organic peeps in your Easter basket this year.
Even Doc Hardiway, a 15-year veteran of the Pennsylvania Agriculture Department's humane candy livestock treatment squad, had a hard time keeping his composure.
"When we busted in the door of the peep coop, there were thousands of them," said Hardiway. "And they just looked at us with those sad itty-bitty dot eyes. It was so sad, I had to step outside."
Acting on a tip from a group of jealous Mennonites, Hardiway and his group raided the Jacob Longenfeffer's mashmallow poultry farm located in Lancaster County yesterday.
The squad freed hundreds of thousands of marshmallow peeps who were being raised in unsanitary, cramped conditions, the agent said.
Peep excrement was spread around the farm, along with chocolate rabbit poop and shattered peanut butter eggs that authorities said could cause salmonella-vanilla.

Just to think of all those poor peeps who would wind up in the microwave of some sadist!
The horror of it all!! BTW what did they do with that chocolate rabbit poop? Loves me some chocolate!!
The Amish are probably selling it on roadside stands. I’ll see what I can do for you.
Freeps for peeps.
Another really great "peeps" thing is here
It's the story of Lord of the Ring with all the characters played by PEEPS (chicks as well as bunny peeps)
