This is not clucking funny...

Okay already – there was a chick on his head! It didn’t poop on him. It wasn’t offensive. It was just a chick to represent Easter and all of its yummy goodness. It’s not that I don’t like the little marshmallow guys. I’m probably one of the only people I know besides sugar hungry kids who will actually purchase a pack of the things over the holiday and greedily eat one at night. I don’t need the sugar, the calories, or the buzz. I just like them – and cotton candy – and taffy – and other weird things.

BUT, I trampled on the ‘chick” owners toes by posting an image of Skully with what is their intellectual property on his head. Shame on me! Really…I don’t have a defense to stand on. I laid an egg. Oops, pardon the puns but it’s the first time “big brother business” has taken an interest in little old me and I’m in shock, sugar shock. And I haven’t even eaten any yet.

Skully sans “chick” is gone from the sales market…Boo Hoo!

All the faces of the offending images have been blurred to protect the innocent. ME!!!!

Oh you must be kidding! You are kidding right?
Small minded people must just be jealous ;o)

Okay, 'fess up! Was this a good April Fool's entry, or did Big Brother Business get you? I believe they would, and I have to admit I'll bet they have at least a couple people whose job it is to find these things. Hmmmph. Your skull was too cute with the peep-Peep-peeps!

P.S. I like them just a tad bit stale.
P.P.S. If this was true, does this mean they're going to find me every time I write "peeps" instead of "people"?

I was going to say "no way!!" but I'm a bit of a sucker and after reading Angelina's comment I am wondering if you are being sneaky!

If it's true, it's totally ridiculous, your chicks are nothing like theirs - I'd like to see them try and bit into them!

It's a wonderful piece!

Honest folks! I forgot what day I was posting this...Yes, indeed I received a very helpful note from the people at Etsy stating that my listing has been pulled due to a letter that they received from a lawyer who represents the marshmellow people. It truly peeped me off but what are ya gonna do! And YES Ang - they apparetnly also have interllecual property over "Peep" We're all going to bad place ladies. Deb can bring the cards!!!! HAHAHAH
