Peep Show

A tragedy in three chomping acts:  An artist, bleary-eyed, exhausted, and half-crazed from staring at yellow Peeps for over an hour, was suddenly overcome with hunger and consumed her three models one by one last night.  Possibly, it was the paint fumes that caused this hideous lapse of self-control.  Perhaps it was the sugary glitter, the glare of unnatural color, the delicious memory of Peeps from the past.  The scent of their sweet plump bodies, the misaligned beady eyes.  But whatever really caused this ravenous behavior, this uncontrollable gluttony, may never be known.  Only a few grains of sugar are all that's left of the little slug-like creatures.  Fortunately, the painting was finished before the Peeps brutal demise.
