Five Questions for Egg Baby Pez

Egg Baby Pez tries to maintain a "sunny side up" approach to life.


Pezhead Monthly: Egg Baby Pez, you are part of the newly designed Pez Easter set for 2004. This set also includes the new Bunny Pez, Chick in Egg Pez, and Lamb Pez. What are your thoughts on being part of the ever-growing Pez family?

Egg Baby Pez: I've got two words for you- Wowie and Zowie. It's one thing to have the honor of being a new Pez dispenser. It's quite another to join the exclusive club of holiday dispensers. Lately it seems like a daytime talk show- all the holiday dispensers are getting makeovers. The Halloween and Christmas sets just got new designs themselves. It's an exciting time to be a Pez.

PM: That's a good point, Egg Baby Pez. However, you have yet to experience a makeover yourself, because unlike your fellow three dispensers, you are the first of your kind. There have been no other Egg Babies in the history of Pez. Does this fact add any pressure for you?

Quite the opposite. I am actually pretty relaxed about the whole thing. I mean, how many updates has Bunny Pez gone through? How about Witch Pez
or, dare I mention, Santa Pez? It's clear that Pez is very, very good to their holiday dispensers. It looks like I've got a long road ahead of me, and that makes me feel pretty good.

PM: I am glad to hear that, Egg Baby Pez. It sounds like you have a pretty positive attitude. But, as I'm sure you know, the reaction in the Pez community to your unique design has been decidedly mixed. While some see you as a fresh, new face in the Pez family, others find your design- and please excuse the frankness- somewhat creepy. How are you addressing this concern in the Pezhead community?

EBP: I know eggsactly what you mean (hee hee!). People want to know- am I an egg that has mysteriously grown a face? A baby trapped inside an egg? Something out of a David Lynch movie? What I try to tell people is this: Pez beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some Pez dispensers are instantly attractive and some are not. But inside, we are all the same- we all store Pez, and we all dispense Pez to kids of all ages. That makes me special forever. If I may quote Christina Aguilera, and believe me I try to quote her everyday, I am beautiful, no matter what they say.

PM: Egg Baby Pez, I promised myself that I would not cry, and you are coming dangerously close to making me breaking my promise. Switching gears, as you know there is a rumor on the Internet that the idea for an Egg Baby Pez was actually submitted to Pez by Vanilla Ice. Can you confirm or deny this rumor?

EBP: I can say with certainty that Vanilla Ice definitely has nothing to do with me being here today. I believe that rumor started based on his hit song "Egg Egg Baby," which he later changed to "Ice Ice Baby" because it flowed better. In fact, he pretty much had to rewrite the entire song to make it flow better. However, he did leave one lyric unchanged: Cookin' MCs like a pound of bacon. Every once in a while I play that song and have myself a smile or two. Bacon and eggs, a match made in heaven.

PM: Thanks for clearing that up, Egg Baby Pez, and thanks for sitting down for the Five Questions. Any final thoughts to share?

EBP: I would like to make a personal plea to the Easter Bunny: this year, ditch the chocolate. It is overrated, it's high in calories, it can make you break out in pimples and hives, and it becomes messy if left in very warm temperatures. This Easter, fill those baskets with some Pez dispensers instead. It's truly the gift that keeps on giving.
