photo and henge by deadeyebart a.k.a. Brett, with permission
When we started, we didn’t think there were enough Stonehenge replicas to last us more than a month, certainly not to go on until 2009. But here we are, well into January, with new henges cropping up all the time. People are wackier than we thought! Which is a good thing. Mostly.
But few are wackier than our friend the Mad Henger, deadeyebart. This peephenge is part of his henging oeuvre. We say “this peephenge” because, well, ta-da! [link] (Please to take note of what’s going on in the last picture on that page. Shocking! And they remembered the bluestones!) Mr. bart is not alone in his peephenginess. Those people at Lord of the Peeps are giving him a run for his marshmallow.
Still, there’s something about the simple structure above, with the bright colours on black. These peeps have an ancient weathered look, as if they have been marinating in light and time for millennia until now they are hiding the secrets of the ages. Yet they would probably still get hot and gooey after a few seconds in the microwave. What a treat!
All peeps are made at a factory a few miles from Clonehenge Headquarters (more peep truthiness here), but we don’t let that bias our sombre decisions. Score: 6 druids for being wacky and for reminding us of spring!
