Peep Attack Widget is a Dashboard widget that allows you to clutter a person's Dashboard screen on their Mac with different colored Peeps.

Distract your co-worker then install the PAW, then simply pull up as many Peeps as possible while they are not around. At this point you can either wait for them to open Dashboard on their own accord, or you can subtly inquire how the weather will be this weekend and ask if they could check that with the weather widget. Await awestruck reaction when they see the army of peeps before them.
Peeps are a product of the Just Born company located in

Clearly, an army of peeps on your desktop is MUCH more effective than duplicating a hundred calculators. It is a sugar-shock-and-awe campaign.

can you not just drag ANY widget out onto the dashboard a bunch of times and have the same effect? or does a bunch of peeps elicit a different response than say, a bunch of thesaurus widgets?

Well technically yeah. But I had to have a reason for making a Peep widget, instead of it merely being an image of a Peep on your Dashboard.
There is no seriousness in this whatsoever, it more or less originated as a joke, the fact that so many people have downloaded it amazes me.
I will say this, if you put 100 Peeps on someones Dashboard before they come to work in the morning and then just wait for their reaction, it tends to be a lot more interesting than say 100 Dictionary widgets.

Punchinthefaceville is a much more hoppin' city than Ineedalifeberg. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. Mayor Peepindash's policies are a little too conservative for my political meanderings.

I am downloading this widget, solely on the basis of a previous, "pathetically" negative review. Hoo-motherfatherin-ray for useless software.

Well, I like it.

Useless for trying to prank other people, as is basically anything else that requires physical access to their computer. But, well, I like Peeps. Geez.

Mellow out.

Two requests: (a) more colors; (b) better picture quality; there's some poor antialiasing under the beak and a few random floating pixels above the Peep's... um, breast, I suppose. They're most visible against a dark background.

Pathetic. Unbelievably, mindbogglingly pathetic. So pathetic that the word "pathetic" has been removed from the dictionary and replaced with the phrase "Peep Attack Widget".

It creates something that looks like a yellow dog turd(though you do have the choice of purple) that just sits there. And if you want more than one you have to add them manually, though its a mystery why anyone would bother to take the time for such a lame gag (you could add multiple iterations of the clock for the same effect, except that might actually be useful). As far as pranks go I'd rate this well below the old "kick me" sign on the back, if only because of the wasted programming effort.

Nobody but an imbecile will find this even remotely funny. You could try it on your co-workers, but expect an express ticket to Punchinthefaceville.

Why isn't it possible to award negative stars?

hey, it's pointless but that's the fun part with widgets. they don't have to do anything. lighten up.

if you can do so much better, then put your money where your big critical mouth is.

that wasn't a review, just an out and out assault.

I wasn't going to download this until I read the incredibly negative review posted earlier. Now I will keep it in my dashboard for a week or two, just 'cuz.
