Five Questions for Rhino Whistle Pez

Rhino Pez
Rhino Whistle Pez doesn't like to toot his own horn.

Pezhead 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 means?

Rhino 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."

PM: Interesting thought, Rhino Whistle Pez. So tell us, what is life like being a part of this notorious MMM crew?

RWP: 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.

PM: And what types of things tie the MMM set together?

RWP: Well, first, we're all Pez dispensers. Dispensing fruity goodness to kids of all ages? Yeah, we've got that covered. But something 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!"

PM: 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?

RWP: 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.

PM: 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?

RWP: 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 website CollectingPez.com. I usually don't like to toot my own horn, but sometimes I just can't help myself.
