This year for the first time, a Passover Peep show was entered into the Washington Post’s third annual “Peeps Show.” Over 30 dioramas made with traditional bunny and chick peeps marshmallow candies (normally considered an Easter tradition) were made for the contest. Number 32 on the slideshow is “A Very Peeps Passover” by Nycole Klein and Chris Patton of Chantilly, Va. Here’s what they said of their creation:
“Who says Peeps are just for Easter?” writes Klein. “Our Peeps have sat down to a traditional Passover Seder, complete with the requisite Passover Haggadah (prayer book), Seder plate, candles, matzo and lots of wine. As an added bonus, the Afikomen is hidden somewhere in the room!”
Number 20 on the slideshow is a creation of Bernard Madoff’s final day in his office, “Bernard Peepoff: The Game is Up” by Heather Kelly and Scott Fay of Berkeley, Calif., and Michael Mavretic of Washington D.C. Most of the dioramas are pop culture references and news stories. Tthe whole slideshow can be seen here.
