Five Questions for the Homer Simpson Pez Dispenser top of page | cover page

Homer Pez
From his perch upon the computer monitor, Homer Pez sees all.

Pezhead Monthly: Right off the bat, Homer, what is the message that you want to bring to the world as a Pez dispenser?

Homer Pez: I want to let working people know that it's important to have fun at work. Whether you're flipping burgers or working at a nuclear power plant, fun comes first. Well, technically, safety comes first, and then fun... Actually, not getting fired would probably be number two on the list. But fun is definitely in the top five or ten.

PM: Truer words were never spoken. Homer, what is your impression of the American work culture today?

HP: It's pretty sad. From my perch upon a computer monitor, I get a daily glimpse of cubicle life. It seems to be such a drab environment. No doors, no ceilings, and those weird flourescent lights. Why can't work be more like it is on the NBC hit comedy "Just Shoot Me," or at the very least like on those Mike's Hard Lemonade commercials?

PM: Interesting points. What would you consider your greatest accomplishment?

HP: I'd say holding my ground and fighting the good fight. Once in a while it gets rough on top of a computer monitor. The desk gets bumped sometimes, causing me to fall a good foot and a half, which, you know, is, like, six times my size. But I've hung in there and still have all the paint and spring-loaded capability that I was born with.

PM: Any regrets?

HP: Regrets? I've had a few. But then again, too few to mention.

PM: I see. Homer Pez, do you have any parting comments to share with the world out there, maybe something you think needs desperately to be heard and known? Any important issues of social justice? Any political statements? The microphone is yours for one last time; run with it.

HP: Doh!

The Month in Pez top of page | cover page

What's happening this month?

  • International Friendship Day (August 1). Share your love of Pez with friends all over the world.

    Some ways to say "Pez is fun" to your international friends:

    Spanish: "Pez es diversiˇn"
    French: "Pez est amusement"
    Italian: "Pez Ŕ divertimento"
    Southern United States: "Pez is fun, y'all"

  • "Hometown Hoedown" in Beloit, Wisconsin (August 26). Grab your partner, dosey do! Flip that Pez and there you go!
  • "Jump, Shout, and Boogie" in Pennsylvania Amish Country. I'm not sure what qualifies as jumping, shouting, and boogie-ing in Amish Country, much less how the Amish are supposed to check this Web site, but I'd wager that Pez is somehow involved (although probably not the motorized candy handers).

Some August Birthdays...

  • Neil Armstrong, August 5, 1930: That's one small step for Pez, one giant step for Pezkind.
  • Reverend Jerry Falwell, August 11, 1933: So far he has not cast Pez into the fiery pits of hell.
  • President Bill Clinton, August 19, 1946: He feels your pain and would probably like to feel your Pez while he's at it.

This Month in Pez History

  • August 3, 1642: Christopher Columbus sets sail for the New World. Discovery of America soon to follow; discovery of Pez unfortunately a few centuries away.
  • August 21, 1959: Hawaii becomes the 50th American state. Aloha Pez!

Pez Haiku #1

I tilt my head back
And give my insides to you.
I, Pez dispenser.
