As a diehard Gator fan, I can tell you that this story is a damn lie:

Peeps prediction: Buckeyes beat Gators in basketball title

SARASOTA, Fla. Oddsmakers favor Florida in Monday's NCAA men's basketball championship showdown with Ohio State, but microwaved marshmallow chicks say the Gators are going down.

This less-than-scientific prediction comes from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, who had a reporter run Final Four and national championship simulations with Peeps jousters.

Peeps jousting is simple: Stick toothpicks in two of the sugary Easter treats and zap them in a microwave. The Peeps puff up until one lances the other. The poked peep loses.

The paper said its marshmallow warriors correctly predicted the Final Four showdowns between Florida and UCLA and Ohio State and Georgetown in two simulations.

And twice the Buckeye Peep took down the Gator Peep.

The real teams meet at 9:18 p.m. EDT tonight at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

And now, because it makes me laugh like a crazy man on mescaline, a totally unrelated photograph of a Peeps chick smoking a cancer stick.
