Five Questions for Lucky Charms Leprechaun Pez

Pezhead Monthly: Lucky Charms Leprechaun Pez, you are one of the more exclusive Pez dispensers out there. Along with the Trix Rabbit Pez, the Honey Nut Cheerios Bee Pez, and Cocoa Puffs Sonny Pez, you bring Pez to the breakfast table in glorious fashion. Is this exciting role more of a burden or a pleasure?

Lucky Charms Leprechaun Pez knows that a pot of Pez gold awaits him at the end of the rainbow.

  Lucky Charms Leprechaun Pez: It's by far a more of a pleasure than anything else. When little tykes have their morning doses of sugar commonly known as breakfast cereal, it's the perfect opportunity to introduce them to the wonders of Pez. They've already got the sugar buzz going, so they might as well keep it going with the Pez candy. Plus, frosted Lucky Charms are magically delicious, and I'd be hard pressed not to say the same thing about Pez. It's almost like destiny slapping you on the butt and yelling "Hee-haw!"

PM: Well, you've got a point there, even if the butt-slapping destiny analogy might be a bit of a stretch. Being a different size than most other dispensers, have you four cereal dispensers had to stick together?

LCLP: Not really, no. Pez dispensers as a whole are a very welcoming group. They don't care what size you are, as long as you can dispense fruity goodness and look good on a shelf. There are exceptions, though. For example, Chewbacca Pez sometimes has a bit of a "hairer-than-thou" attitude, kind of like

Cousin It on "The Addams Family." And I confess that my Cereal Pez brother-in-arms, Trix Rabbit Pez, sometimes becomes unruly too. Silly Rabbit, Pez is for kids.

PM: It's good to hear that overall Pez dispensers are a friendly group. However, I understand that you had a rough time early on in your Pez life. Are you comfortable enough to share this story?

LCLP: Well, it's been several months, and I'm just now gathering up the courage to discuss this traumatic event. I ultimately decided that it needed to be shared with the Pezhead community as a whole. Basically, here's the story in a nutshell: Someone at the Lucky Charms factory, be they just plain incompetent or, dare I suggest, an operative from Skittles or Mini M&M's, packaged me upside down. No big deal, right? Well, let me tell you, it was. I sat on that store shelf for a whole week! During that time all of my Pez blood rushed to my Pez head. I started having hallucinations, like that one horrible one with rainbow-shaped marshmallows chasing me around. (Pauses) It was a very hard time for me. Fortunately, I was soon purchased and set free from this torment. Even though I may have decreased in resale value, at least I live a fairly normal life. Well, for a Pez dispenser anyway.

PM: You know, Lucky Charms Leprechaun Pez, some Pezheads particularly like to collect factory errors, where dispensers may be packaged upside down, or with paint or parts missing. Here's your chance to speak to them too. What are your thoughts on this?

LCLP: It does need to be said that anyone who collects Pez is okay in my book. Really, I don't want to come off as bitter or hateful. I would simply suggest that if any collectors out there have upside down Pez, and they don't want to take them out of the package, they can at least turn the package upside down for a while, or maybe take them off of the shelves and let them lay down or take them on a road trip or something. I only spent a week upside down, but my heart goes out to all my brothers and sisters who spend months, years upside down. Hallucinations of rainbow-shaped marshmallows likely pale in comparison to what those poor Pez must be going through.

PM: That was deep. I'm almost moved to tears. But I will go ahead and ask you one last question: What parting words of advice can you offer the Pez community?

LCLP: Never put a Pez dispenser on a rodeo horse, especially a leprechaun Pez dispenser, and especially an angry, epileptic rodeo horse. Share your Pez with the less fortunate, the more fortunate, and everyone in between. And for Pete's sake, stay away from me Lucky Charms!
