Egg Baby Pez tries to maintain a "sunny
side up" approach to life.
Baby Pez, you are part of the newly designed Pez Easter
set for 2004. This set also includes the new Bunny Pez,
Chick in Egg Pez, and Lamb Pez. What are your thoughts
on being part of the ever-growing Pez family?
Baby Pez: I've got
two words for you- Wowie and Zowie. It's one thing to
have the honor of being a new Pez dispenser. It's quite
another to join the exclusive club of holiday dispensers.
Lately it seems like a daytime talk show- all the holiday
dispensers are getting makeovers. The Halloween and Christmas
sets just got new designs themselves. It's an exciting
time to be a Pez.
a good point, Egg Baby Pez. However, you have yet to experience
a makeover yourself, because unlike your fellow three
dispensers, you are the first of your kind. There have
been no other Egg Babies in the history of Pez. Does this
fact add any pressure for you?
Quite the opposite. I am actually pretty relaxed about the whole
thing. I mean, how many updates has Bunny Pez gone through? How
about Witch Pez or,
dare I mention, Santa Pez? It's clear that Pez is very, very good
to their holiday dispensers. It looks like I've got a long road
ahead of me, and that makes me feel pretty good.
I am glad to hear that, Egg Baby Pez. It sounds like you have
a pretty positive attitude. But, as I'm sure you know, the reaction
in the Pez community to your unique design has been decidedly
mixed. While some see you as a fresh, new face in the Pez family,
others find your design- and please excuse the frankness- somewhat
creepy. How are you addressing this concern in the Pezhead community?
know eggsactly what you mean (hee hee!). People want to know-
am I an egg that has mysteriously grown a face? A baby trapped
inside an egg? Something out of a David Lynch movie? What I
try to tell people is this: Pez beauty is in the eye of the
beholder. Some Pez dispensers are instantly attractive and some
are not. But inside, we are all the same- we all store Pez,
and we all dispense Pez to kids of all ages. That makes me special
forever. If I may quote Christina Aguilera, and believe me I
try to quote her everyday, I am beautiful, no matter what
Egg Baby Pez, I promised myself that I would not cry, and you
are coming dangerously close to making me breaking my promise.
Switching gears, as you know there is a rumor on the Internet
that the idea for an Egg Baby Pez was actually submitted to
Pez by Vanilla Ice. Can you confirm or deny this rumor?
can say with certainty that Vanilla Ice definitely has nothing
to do with me being here today. I believe that rumor started
based on his hit song "Egg Egg Baby," which he later
changed to "Ice Ice Baby" because it flowed better.
In fact, he pretty much had to rewrite the entire song to make
it flow better. However, he did leave one lyric unchanged: Cookin'
MCs like a pound of bacon. Every once in a while I play
that song and have myself a smile or two. Bacon and eggs, a
match made in heaven.
Thanks for clearing that up, Egg Baby Pez, and thanks for sitting
down for the Five Questions. Any final thoughts to share?
I would like to make a personal plea to the Easter
Bunny: this year, ditch the chocolate. It is overrated, it's
high in calories, it can make you break out in pimples and hives,
and it becomes messy if left in very warm temperatures. This
Easter, fill those baskets with some Pez dispensers instead.
It's truly the gift that keeps on giving.
