'Chicks,' a 'Girls' Parody in Peeps

March 25, 2013

Eastertime means Peeps time, and over here at Epicurious, playing with the edible chicks and bunnies is our business. Last year Michael created A Peep of Thrones, and this year, we've decided to pay homage to Lena Dunham's TV show, Girls, with the marshmallowy holiday staples. If you haven't seen the show, it follows a group of four young 20-somethings trying to figure out their lives in New York City. We've Peepified several scenes from the last season. Be warned, there are a few spoilers, marshmallow nudity, and Peeps dealing with adult themes after the jump. The chicks at the center of our tale are Hannah (yellow), Shoshanna (pink), Jessa (purple), and Marnie (blue). Hannah is at the center of it all. She's an aspiring writer, and she is very comfortable with her body. She gets naked. A lot. Forty percent of the time. And she sometimes takes baths with Jessa. Cause what chick hasn't taken a bath with their best chickfriend? Am I right, hens? At the end of the first season, Jessa got married to a totally boring financial guy. This season they break up. Here, in their dramatic last stand, she breaks her husband's humanitarian award by throwing it over the banister. "Not my Humi!" Shoshanna ends up dating coffee-shop manager Ray this season, but they spend an awful lot of time in her frilly apartment discussing their relationship. Marnie starts seeing the small-statured artist Booth Jonathan. She even buys a plastic dress to impress him, and she helps him throw an important art party. But then she learns he doesn't think of her as his chickfriend, and so her imaginary life as the artist's hen remains just that ... a dream. Hannah decides she can no longer date the big, goofy, cuddly Adam, as she needs to experience life to the fullest. Instead, she has him arrested! In her second rebel act, she decides to do cocaine and write about the experience for the Internets. It changes her. And drives her to dance, dance, dance! When told by a clubgoer that she's got the moves, Hannah says "I know!" And who can forget that time Hannah went upstate with Jessa? They drove around (fast!) with high school boys, Hannah pet a rabbit, and then later at dinner she learned the rabbit she'd showered her affection on was now on her dinner plate. This captures that moment. Then midway through the season things start taking a graphic, dark turn. And Hannah gets a Q-Tip stuck in her ear. The End.
