that, with all due respect, you are not a vintage dispenser. The
vintage Octopus dispenser is a highly treasured collectible, while
you are not quite so highly treasured. How does that make you feel?
Octopus Pez may look preoccupied, but he is ready, willing,
and able to offer up a Pez to anyone who may want one.
Monthly: Crazy Octopus Pez, you are part
of the Crazy Zoo set, which has been retired from production
in Europe but which recently has resurfaced as part of the
Animals set exclusive to Pez.com. How does it feel to
Octopus Pez: Let
me tell you, it feels great! Woo hoo! Although I really
do need to quote one of my idols, Mr. LL Cool J, when he
says, Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.
Any casual browser of eBay's Pez pages will recognize me
a regular, much like Buddy Hackett was on the Johnny Carson
have just earned my deep respect for mentioning both LL
Cool J and Johnny Carson in the same breath. I should just
stop the interview here, but somehow I cannot. I guess I
need to ask, what's so crazy about being an octopus?
In and of itself, not
much. True, I am an unusual shade of purple, and true, I
am wearing a scuba mask and peering kind of strangely off
to the side, but when you strip all that away, I'm just
like your typical Pez dispenser. I put my pants on one leg
at a time. Granted, it takes me a bit longer being an octopus
and all, but what are you going to do.
That is truly inspiring, Crazy Octopus
Pez. I should make it clear
thanks a lot! I'm really looking forward to your self-esteem seminar!!
Seriously though, I get what you are saying. Often times, upon
hearing of an Octopus Pez in the area, a collector's facial expression
goes from "Oh boy, I'm gonna get me a vintage!" to "Oh
crap, not him again!" when they actually see me. But I have
learned from my colleagues that every Pez is highly treasured.
Even us non-vintage ones, fancy boy.
Wow, I am sorry if I touched
a nerve there, Crazy Octopus Pez. Would it help if I told you
that I'd like to be under the sea, in an octopus's garden in the
you know my favorite song! All is forgiven, I suppose. And to
think I was considering dispensing ink in your general direction,
as opposed to the fruity goodness that I typically dispense to
kids of all ages.
Well, I would have had it
coming, that's for sure. Finally, Crazy Octopus Pez, what is
that you are looking at out of the corner of your eye?
it's someone coming by to load me up with some delicious Pez candy,
of course. They've got an assorted package, so it will be a little
bit of everything. Wouldn't that put a smile on your face too?
