is truly in the air this month, as Pezhead Monthly
puts out its seventh issue. For this issue I decided to
take a different tack; that is, instead of a main story
I thought I would offer up the first ever Pezhead Monthly
Photo Essay. This month's theme is "Pez Dispensers
in Love" and features some of the famous pairs of dispensers
out there. Also featured are some Pez Almost-Love Songs,
and returning contenders Five Questions, Pez Poetry, the
Month in Pez, and the Pez Almost-Quote.
not to say this too often, because after a while I think
it becomes redundant, but I really do enjoy putting this
newsletter together. It gives me a chance to express my
love of collecting Pez and writing, and it lets me have
some big fun in the process. In the coming months, I hope
that others will contribute to the newsletter and make it
even more fun. One of the future issues will feature the
first annual Pez Poetry Slam, which is a perfect opportunity
for other Pezheads to flex their literary muscles.

I kept this in here "as is") One important
note: The Web site for this newsletter will be changing
addresses soon. Keep posted as this change takes place (I
will have my current site up for a while at least as a placeholder).
And, by all means, keep flipping those dispensers.

that time of year again; when lovers gaze longingly into
each other's eyes, profess their undying devotion to one
another, and dream the dreams that lovers dream.
the world of Pez is no different. Herewith, four scenes
that prove beyond a doubt that the concepts of love and
Pez are forever intertwined. (Note: I have reduced the
images sizes of the following four pictures for those of
you who have slower Web connections. To view larger sizes,
just click on the pictures.)
Pez Love Tragedy: Move over, Shakespeare, this one's
got it all. Despite being trapped in their confined plastic
quarters by overbearing Pez parents, despite their differences
in packaging, Donald Duck Pez and Daisy Duck Pez desperately
long to be together. Daisy's bright smile indicates she
does not look down on Donald for not having the "New
Dispenser" sticker on his packaging. Truer, more tragic
love the world has never known.
Is Not Dead: Back in medieval times, it was common practice
for a knight to slay a dragon to save his fair maiden. Nowadays,
this kind of respect and reverence for loved ones too often
goes by the wayside. Boy Pez, however, makes a point to
treat his Girl Pez like the princess that she is. Here he
is kind enough to hold open the door to his Pezmobile for
her, as he prepares to take her out for a night on the Pez
Means Never Having To Say "Get Lost": Garfield
Pez is very happy. Why, you ask? After months and months
of trying to win the hand of the love of his life, Arlene
Pez, she finally accepted his offer for a date. Granted,
Arlene is only going out with Garfield because she lost
a bet with one of her friends. But as this photo shows,
love just might be in the air.
Must Remember This, A Pez Is Just A Pez: The fundamental
things apply. Things like sitting back and watching a romantic
movie with the one you love. With the kids asleep, Homer
Simpson Pez (also featured in Pezhead Monthly Vol.
1, Issue 1) and his lovely wife Marge Pez prepare to watch
their favorite movie, "Casablanca." This also
gives Homer a chance to swoop Marge off her feet and say,
in his best Bogart voice, "Here's looking at you, Marge
