A confection made from sugar and marshmallow in the shape of a small baby
chick. The are produced by the "Just Born" Co. out of Bethlehem PA. They
have 160 Cal. (5 peep serving size), no fat, 15mg of sodium, 40g of
carbos, 36g sugar and 1 gram of protein. It also contains corn syrup,
gelatin, and a mix of less than 5% potassium sorbate (preservative),
artificial flavor (who knows what that is), yellow dye #5 (for the yellow
ones) and carnauba wax (the eyes). Strangely enough, there's a web site
(anyone got the URL) where someone actually tested peeps and found they
were impervious to all kinds of toxic stuff.

These are all the serious answers I have.

Would I kid you? You think this kind research is easy?

Now, if you had asked for *non-serious* answers, I might have told you this:
> What is a peep?

[7]The Kamikaze Peep Squad grew out of the growing awareness on the SF.TV
   newsgroups that the telepathic characters appearing in the TV series
   Babylon 5 were actually somehow related to a particular type of
   sugar-coated marshmallow candy.  It has been known for years that these
   candies (known as "peeps") were telepathic, but the connection that they
   were being referred to in B5 whenever someone talked about telepaths in
   general, and telepathic *weapons* in specific, was not directly made
   until ..

[8]The KPS now had a purpose (to kill boring threads), a method (by peeping
   them to death), a philosophy ("if it kills us.  And vice-versa."), and a
   rallying cry ("peep").  It also had a name, which would change within a
   few posts.

There are, of course, more non-serious answers, but I don't want to
detract from your serious question. I hope you are seriously satisfied
with my serious answers.

"tomservo@netcom.com ("Tom Servo") has recently been making a bit of a
scene on alt.config. Seems he got himself a hold of some newgrouping
instructions and decided to create every single group he personally
saw a need for. When he received a bunch of complaints from various people
interested seeing proper procedures followed, he uttered the now-famous
rebuttal "Too bad."
