This week on the Rubber Room,we targeted the Pez candy company for picking on someone just because he has a 7 foot tall Pez dispenser. The trouble started the minute Gary Doss opened his Pez memorabilia museum in California with a large collection of Pez dispensers dating back to 1952 including the self-created 7 foot 10 inch snowman which Mr. Doss calls a work of art. The Pez people disagree,calling it a violation of several trademarks. In addition,they want the snowman destroyed and to be paid unspecified damages despite the fact the dispenser is in the Guiness Book as the world's largest candy dispenser thus making it a one-of-a kind. Mr. Doss has tried several times to placate the Pez people by changing both the name of his museum and his prize display.(slap) First of all,doesn't Pez have anything better to than go after someone is a huge fan of their products. Second,he created that particular dispenser so basically he can do with it as he pleases. And any pending litigation regarding it would be directed at Mr. Doss where he is the legal owner. Again another glaring example of big business being too big for its own britches. (double slap) You'd think in these hard times, Pez would like a little free publicity,but,I guess some folks like to do things the hard way. Good luck in court you empty-headed coporate dipsticks. As for Mr. Doss,keep fighting. Don't let the Man crush your dreams. And here's hoping one of those execs choke on a stale Pez. That's it for now,check me out every Saturday night from 7-9 on cyberstationusa.com for the Two Mikes block for more rock-n-roll and Dope Slap madness. Bye for now my sick little pups!!
