Political Peeps: Easter Treats Take Over D.C.! (SLIDESHOW)

Peeps! They're amazing. You can nuke them, shoot them, squish them, they'll always survive. According to NPR they have myriad uses: "Some become art, some become pets, and some are tortured as mad scientists try to discover what a Peep's breaking point is." We also hear they make great travel companions, which makes sense cause they're always smiling.

This brings us to our favorite part of peeps: Dressing them up (or down) to gently mock the world of politics.

Throughout the years, great minds have dedicated themselves to the humor of peeps. They are inherently funny (food stuffs with faces often are) but it takes care and wit to make them gut-busting. The following slideshow gives you a taste of political peep dioramas people have designed in the past few years for competitions or just for kicks. Click on the links below the images to find more!
