Death to Peeps Fun Fest!
Friday 8 pm—Con Suite
Legions of Peeps have given up the ghost in David Weber's Honor Harrington books. But the People's Republic of Haven is still out to conquer the universe, and Boskone 45 will be the scene of the strangest battle yet.
Weber's Peeps typically meet their ends in exploding spaceships, armed combat, assassinations, revolutions, and more. On Friday evening of Boskone, we'll trap 1,000 or more of their marshmallow counterparts in the consuite and investigate methods both familiar and new for doing them in.
Somebody Else's Microwave is just the beginning. Join us as we demonstrate some of the science experiments that led www.peepresearch.org to conclude "Given enough time, the proper resources, and access to some really toxic stuff, one can probably dissolve just about anything except Peep eyes." Enter the Diorama Building Contest and win prizes for the Most Creative Use of Dead Peeps, Best Way to Banish or Disarm Peep Ghosts, Best Peeps Assassination Technique, and other categories still to be determined.
We need people to help run the Peeps science demonstrations, judge the dioramas, dispense Peeps jousting sticks, and more. If you want to help, or to simply tell us something you've always wanted to see done to a marshmallow Peep, please send email to Geri Sullivan.
