Honorable mention...

Who the hell wants to be honorable about it??

As most of you know, you are the winners of this year's highly competitive (more than 400 entries) Pioneer Press Marshmallow Peeps Diorama contest.

For the article announcing the winners to run on April 16, we'd like you to bring your dioramas to the Pioneer Press office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Tuesday, April 11, so they can be photographed in our photo studio. We also will want to take a photograph of the creator.

If you're willing to leave the dioramas here at the paper, we'll then transport them to the Bell Museum where they will go on display next month.

The Pioneer Press building is located at 345 Cedar Street in downtown St. Paul, near the corner of 4th and Cedar. Metered street parking is available. At the front desk, ask for the photo desk, extension 5497.

Note that my poor sister has to take off work to cart this melting, frosting-covered diorama downtown and have her picture taken with it! I've instructed her to knock down the winner and stomp on their entry. Pay no attention to the tears of children, they are whiners.

(Actually, I'm quite tickled that we got an honorable mention. Out of 400+ entries, eh? Not bad. Now, my mom, on the other hand, is *pissed*.)
