Stop the Reading Madness Mini Challenge:

Option 1: Peeps War
Put your leftover Peeps to war! Place two or more Peeps facing each other on a microwavable plate (paper, if you want easy post-battle clean up). Stick a toothpick sword in each Peep, getting them poised and ready for battle. Turn on the microwave, and see which Peep evades the sword! Write a post about the battle and include a photo if possible.

The warriors face each other for the duel:

The duel, held behind a closed door for propriety's sake, ends in a draw.

Apparently, I pick the Peep warriors that have a pacifist side. They have even joined *hands* in protest of the forced duel.

Sigh.

This is a hoot! I love it that you used the fancy sort of toothpicks with the ruffled tops . . . reminiscent of Three Musketeers. Nicely done!

And I vote for 13 Clocks!
