Whistle Pez doesn't like to toot his own horn.
Monthly: Rhino Whistle Pez, it says here
in your press junket that you are part of the famed MMM
set of Pez dispensers. Can you tell us what exactly that
Whistle Pez: Certainly. After all, some
of the readers out there may not be as savvy with the
Pez lingo as we are. MMM stands for either "Merry
Melody Makers" or "Merry Music Makers."
I, however, like to think of it as more of an expression
than an acronym, as in "MMM
PEZ! Very tasty!"
Kind of like Campbells soup, "Mmm, mmm good."
Interesting thought, Rhino Whistle Pez.
So tell us, what is life like being a part of this notorious
It's crazy, I'll tell you that. Koala Whistle
Pez is always starting trouble, asking us where the eucalyptus
trees are, when he knows perfectly well there's not any
eucalyptus trees around. And Dog Whistle Pez? Don't get
me started. If he sings "Who Let the Dogs Out"
one more time, I swear I'll lose it. But you know, at
the end of the day, we have more in common than we'd admit.
And what types of things tie the MMM set together?
Well, first, we're all Pez dispensers. Dispensing
fruity goodness to kids of all ages? Yeah, we've got that covered.
else that we share is that we all play a beautiful noise. You
see, attached to the back of each of our heads are plastic tubes,
so that people can blow on us like whistles, as if to say "Hey!
Come and get your Pez!"
I noticed that plastic tube but I felt awkward
bringing it up, Rhino Whistle Pez. It certainly looks painful.
How do you manage to get by with it?
You know, I've had it since day one, so it's
truly a part of me. It is part of what makes me special. I can't
imagine life without it, actually. True, sometimes when a breeze
comes by it kind of tickles, but that comes with the territory.
I'd rather be tickled by a breeze than get knocked over by it
and risk getting broken.
I tell myself that all the time, Rhino Whistle
Pez. Lastly, it should be noted that you're not on the store
shelves in the United States. What's the deal with the low profile?
Well, let me tell you, I love America, especially
this month when it celebrates its independence. Unfortunately,
like so many other of my Pez brethren, I am only found in stores
outside the US. But don't despair, because I do enjoy making
the rounds at the Pez conventions, and of course there's always
eBay. Plus, you'll find me prominently featured on the excellent
I usually don't like to toot my own horn, but sometimes I just
can't help myself.
