PeePville Winner

Congratulations to “Peeps on the Platform” by Shelly Layser. They took 26.61% of the poll before I had to shut it down early for some serious anomalies. Many online polling isn’t the best way to pick a winner after all. Next year I’ll put a panel together to pick the winners. Having said that – this entry kicks ass and is well deserving of their win. Having said that, I think all entries, particularly the nine finalists absolutely kicked ass. Shelly will be getting her dinner courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant and all entrants will be reminded to come to our next happy hour in June for some PoPville swag. Thanks again to all for being good sports – sorry about the final poll craziness – and I can’t wait to see your entries next year!! STAY TUNED.

Wow. Did this turn out better than I expected. Holy cow. Of course, it made picking the finalists extremely difficult but I finally narrowed it down to nine. Now it’s your turn to pick the overall champion. The winners get taken out to dinner courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant and drinks courtesy me. At first I was gonna give free t-shirts to the top three but I think I’ll just schedule a June happy hour and give free t-shirts to all who entered so stay tuned for that. So without further ado – here is the poll – which shall close at noon on Friday. We’re just a little neighborhood blog so please let’s be cool and use the honor system here: Please vote once and only once. Ed. Note: Of course you can tell your friends to vote for you but tell your friends to be cool too. Thanks to all who took the time to enter – your creations were amazing!

Without further ado:

Impeepment-Pickering

“1. The Impeepment of the President

2. The Peeps as they were forced out of the Washington Post, jumping to almost certain doom until PoPville came to their rescue.”

No more new entries are being accepted though there are still a few in the queue that I’ll post this week. Then I will then pick 5-10 finalists that you guys will vote on next week. I will take the winners out to dinner (courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant) and drinks (unless the high school kids win, then just dinner.)

“My Inauguration Brings All the Peeps to the Yard by K. Lorenzana and S. Byham

We wanted to highlight the difference in crowd size and attendee demographics between the 2009 and 2017 inaugurations. The 2009 side is filled with hope and change and tiny Uncle Joe posters. The 2017 side has more of a ‘peeps grab back’ vibe as president cheeto, with a tiny hand and long red tie, is sworn in.

The second pic is a peep’s eye view of 2017 – replete with MAGA hats and the original ‘T inserted in the P’ campaign logo.”

PeePville Montage

“Behold: Welcome to PeePville
By Sam and Shelley

We’re not gonna lie, we are shamelessly pandering to people like us — those who read PoPville obsessively on a daily basis.

We worked on this a couple nights a week for the last few weeks, channeling both our fearless Editor’s voice and the frequently peep-ular articles featured on the blog. It was a ton of fun.

If you pay special attention, you’ll see that some of Peepville’s regulars have aired their opinions here too.”

Above ground, Police Peeps have blocked off the station with caution tape as a small group of Protesting Peeple have begun to gather.”

Bunnies March

“Bunnies’ March on Washington
By Tobey Busch and Marcy Busch

Inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, we recreated the scene with strong and resisting bunny peeps. We adapted the signs (“Hands off My Eggs,” “This Bunny Bites Back,” etc.), the iconic Women’s March logo, and the marchers’ outfits (see Rosie the Riveter, the Statue of Liberty, white pants suits, pink “hats,” etc.). We tried to capture the volume, creativity, and enthusiasm of the marchers, as well as the unifying and positive atmosphere of the march.”

From Megan Griffiths-Ward:

“I’ve called it “The Peeple’s Uprising.” All hats hand knitted, background painted, etc. All my own original work. Sign ideas borrowed from the women’s march, the upcoming science march, the necessary Peep puns, etc. You have to look closely because there is a lot there.”
