Seattle Peeps and Others

Entries are in for The Seattle Times Peeps contest and even though the loss of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is a prominent theme, another one is the East Coast miracle of the safe landing of a passenger plane in the Hudson River.

I looked at every one of the 145 entries and other themes included the controversial "Octo-Mom," President Obama's victory, support for the home teams and allusions to a snowstorm that paralyzed the city and caused anger when Mayor Greg Nickels banned salt on the roads. Click here to see the entries.

Check out last year's Washington Post gallery here.

This year, the Courier News is having a "Primp Your Peeps" contest. Click here to learn how to vote on entries.

Make sure to have some marshmallow chicks and bunnies on hand to munch while judging the entries. I like my Peeps just slightly stale, for that subtle crunch when you bite their heads off. I haven't looked at the entries yet - shall we see a Peeps pileup on the Somerville Circle? SalesPeeps at Route 22 auto dealerships waiting for customers? Peeps Organization for Progress holding a rally?

Take a look and cast your vote.
