PeepsTown springs up
In a strange case, reported here for the first time, a town sprang up overnight. Last night, apparently whilst the local residents were busy with their schooling and farming and doing and then sleeping, the squat and oddly yellow residents of the County’s newest village, named “PeepsTown” moved in.
It is not known what industry the residents will undertake, nor whether they are church going folks. One rumor has it that they are Baptists, but that they baptize by fire rather than water, fearing the liquid would melt them into an undesirable goo. One can always spot the baptized Peeps due to their crusty caramel exterior and their peaceful demeanor.
They are especially active around Easter, particularly enjoying to surprise little children when they awaken Easter morning to find their little baskets. One must admit to their yellowy cuteness as they hide in happy glee under the strings of plastic grass, knowing that delightful children’s squeals will soon commence.
However, this is the first time the Peeps have banded together to form their own town. The Mayor has been called to help settle the minds and hearts of apprehensive residents as to whether this new development is an addition to the neighborhood or a threat. The Mayor has said that if the development is deemed an addition he will lobby to have the water line extended.
