Peak peak apparently passed

"Peak peak reached", The Daily Mash 6/2/2014:

THE world is on the cusp of peak exhaustion after hitting peaks in every possible field.  

The simultaneous achievement of peak beard, peak box-set, peak 90s reunion nostalgia tour, peak gourmet burger and peak superhero film means that it is downhill from here.

    I was going to leave a trenchant comment here, but I guess it's too late.

    Y, I'm afraid we've already hit peak cusps.

    @Dan we've passed peak trenchantness?

    @Mara K — I'm afraid all the evidence (including this instance) points that way.

    It has been looking a trifle peaked.

    As long as we still have Peek Frean.

    @ Robert: when I was as child in Australia in the 1970s, one of our family's most commonly-eaten was made by Peek Frean(s), and I simply couldn't figure out what that company name meant. After reading Mark's post yesterday I looked it up, and found that they are the surnames of the founders. I rarely by biscuits now, so I don't know if any of their products, or how wide a range, are available here now.

    Actually, I haven't seen any Peek Freans (in the NE USA) for many a year.

    Remember, we live in a country that still has the 'trial of the century' only about every third year. I doubt we've reached peak peak yet.
