Peep Cheeks

There’s something inherently funny about stuffing Marshmallow Peeps in your mouth. I did it as a radio bit during my on-air audition in Knoxville eleven years ago and again a few times after that.

There’s an improv game called Marshmallow Madness that we occasionally play during Einstein Simplified shows. Two improvisers try to play a serious scene. They have to to stuff a marshmallow in their mouth every time they make the audience laugh.¬†Around Easter time, we use Peeps instead of standard marshmallows. When emcee Paul Simmons announced the game this past Tuesday, Greg Huff and I got to play. Tonya Cinnamon of Cinnamon Studios gave me permission to post some of her photos from the show.

We weren’t the only ones taking advantage of discounted Peeps this week. Jimmy Kimmel and Shaquille O’Neal stuffed their mouths with Marshmallow Peeps on Kimmel’s show Monday night.
