Tragedy on Lord of the Peeps Set

The scene this morning.

Entropia police carry the victim away.

ENTROPIA (Peepers) - Another scandal has rocked the Entropy House studios. This time it was even more serious – suicide. A young peep ingénue, apparently devastated by her inability to score a starring role, drowned herself in a cup of cocoa in one of the prop warehouses. The body was found this morning by a member of the film crew, and police were quick to cordon off the area.

The peep, whose name has not been released, had apparently tried out for, and been turned down for, the role of the elf queen Galadriel. “She was simply too young and sweet – we needed an older peep, someone who had been sitting on the shelf a bit longer,” said a source at the studios, who did not wish to be named.
