Innocently shopping for wedding gift for nephew. Pulled up Bed, Bath & Beyond Web site (remembering to log on through Upromise so that 2% of what I spend goes into a 529 plan for the kids - LOVE when I remember to take that extra step). And was assaulted with THIS on the BB&B home page:
Really, Lenox China people (and BB&B as agent therefor)? Like I don't have enough Easter decor as it is, you have to come out with something with a PEEPS MOTIF? And not just one "something" - you appear to have launched an entire COLLECTION, consisting of multiple "somethings." Like tealight holders. Kinda like the tealight holders. But I really like the salt and pepper shakers, pictured above. Notwithstanding the fact that I have two sets of perfectly serviceable - fancy, even - Easter-themed salt and pepper shakers (one Arthur Court, the other Fitz & Floyd).
I really like Peeps - real and facsimile. Four small plush peeps (two chicks and two bunnies) and one giant pillow Peep reside in my office full-time. Therefore, the idea of Peeps salt and pepper shakers appeals to me. I would lose the tray, which I really don't like that much. The bunny and chick stand on their own - literally and figuratively. And, minus the tray, they might be mistaken for real Peeps. "Can you pass the salt? Hey, don't manhandle the Peep - you'll disturb the sugar and get the marshmallow all gooshy. Oh - the Peep IS the salt." (I like this scenario better than "I just bit into your Peep and chipped my front tooth. May I have my dentist send the bill directly to you, or would you prefer to have it sent to your insurer?")
