Peep, peep, peep, peep, peep

Emory's mascot is the Eagle, but, really ... maybe it should be the Peep.

What would the holidays be without them? But ... what do we really know about Peeps?

Back in 1999, two Emory alumni, Gary Falcon 91C and James Zimring 92C 98PhD 99M 02MR, wanted to find out. The groundbreaking research they conducted on Peeps back then remains remarkably popular today. (More than 12.6 million visitors popular, if you believe those odometer counter things.)

Emory's eScienceCommons blog picked up on it a little while back, and recently posted a survey you can take, gauging your Peepness. (Is that even a word?)

EAAvesdropping is just happy that spring has come to Georgia ... the Peeps like being outside. That said, the Peeps are really happy anytime. After all ... they're always in season.

  1. I think that someone should be looking into why all the votes weren't counted in the SGA re-run election as stated in the Wheel written by the Editorial Board.
    How could this have been accepted as a fair election when students voted on the :
    !) Wrong Day
    2) because of a false test run by the elections board.
    3) and not correct information about the correct Date on the SGA web site....

    Sounds like a Florida Election I seem to remember
