"Aye's" have it: Pirate Pez Bobblehead shakes
Monthly: Pirate Pez Bobblehead, you are
one of those "exclusive" licensed Pez products
that really exemplify the power and wonder of Pez, truly
one in a million. Are you finding all of this fame overwhelming?
Pez Bobblehead: Well, first, I hate to
be picky here, but technically I am one in five thousand.
No, really, check the box. But beyond that little detail,
I really do feel honored to be part of the Pez family.
My grandfather, made in the 1970s as an actual Pez dispenser,
is from what I understand a favorite piece of many a collection.
So I had the luxury of having his coattails to ride on.
But I'd like to think I have been able to make a name
Indeed you have, Pirate Pez Bobblehead,
indeed you have. But I have to ask, how are you reconciling
being part of the wondrous Pez family with also being
a pirate? It seems that these two things are rather at
odds with one another.
Well there's a contrast, sure, but as usual the
happiness and joy of Pez comes through with flying colors. I
have to say that I do enjoy the pirate look- the eye patch and
the bandana makes me look quite the part. Heck, if I had shoulders
I might even have a little parrot to keep me company. But being
a Pez means that I cannot just rampage innocent villagers and
steal their gold and silver. Instead, as a Pez I have a responsibility
to put smiles on people's faces and sunshine in their hearts,
and that's a little difficult to do when you are threatening
to cut their throats.
That is a good point, Pirate Pez Bobblehead.
But do you at least get to say any of those cool pirate sayings?
And do you ever wish you were off searching for buried treasure
instead of being part of a Pez collection?
Again, Pez only makes being a pirate that much
better. For example, I often enjoy saying things like "There
be Pez in them thar hills, gar!" or "Yo ho
ho and a bottle of Pez Juice!" (Ed. note: for more
info about Pez Juice, check out www.pezjuice.com.),
or the ever popular "Pez marks the spot!" Man,
Batman Pez always enjoys that one, let me tell you. As far as
buried treasure, I don't ever really desire to go out on some
quest to find it. But I can tell you with certainty that the
best kind of treasure is buried in the chambers of a loaded
Eloquently put, Pirate Pez Bobblehead. Shifting
gears here, are there any unique challenges that a Pez Bobblehead
Without a question, the headaches can become
unbearable. You see, unlike regular Pez dispensers, my spring
is not used for loading and dispensing Pez candy, but rather
it is used to connect my head to my body. As a result, any slight
movement causes me to experience a great deal of head shaking.
I'm telling you, Stevie Wonder has nothing on me. But luckily,
Nurse Pez Bobblehead and Doctor Pez Bobblehead not only have
the medical expertise necessary to treat my frequent headaches,
but also the ability to empathize with me. That really goes
a long way.
I'll bet it does. Finally, Pirate Pez Bobblehead,
2003 was the year of the so-called "Pirate Super Bowl,"
featuring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders.
Did you feel any sense of sadness over not being allowed to
participate, not even as a guest commentator?
Well, it would have been nice to be asked, that's
for sure. But really, the extent of my sports knowledge extends
solely to my experiences with the recent sports promotion Pez
dispensers. So to be honest, I wouldn't be able to offer much
insight into the big game. However, if there is ever a need
for someone to chime in with incisive statements like "Prepare
to walk the Pez shelf, arrgh!" then look no further
than Yours Truly.
