    I was anticipating the pun by the second comment. Now, as for that second to last panel, Pig seems a little bit too into this hobby. He needs a new diversion.

    Just two puns in a punchline is unworthy of Pastis.

    There would be, if they ever made a Pez for the author of Liberty Meadows (on these pages).

    I have to admit, I didn’t see that one coming at all. Well played, Stephan!

    So Rat has finally done it… I didn’t think he would.

    Rat, don’t you know that you will now no longer exist?!?!

    Now that’s one big pez dispenser.

    By the way, I noticed that Pig makes a cameo appearance in today’s Slylock Fox comic strip, along with Snoopy and Popeye.

    @chireef

    I’d rather be a Pezant then a peasant… {|;<{)»

    Pez means “fish” in Spanish. It’s also a common surname in some parts of Spain, where the Pez dispenser was invented. (I didn’t learn that till I moved here). Somehow “fish candy” just doesn’t sound so inviting.

    the candy was invented in germany. they called the candy “pez” because “pfefferminz”(which is what the candy was originally called) wouldn’t fit on the dispenser.

    If one were to pull PEZ-Stephan’s head back would more puns come out?
    Also, I collect PEZ, too. I just go for the ones I like. Valuable collectibles just like money, ya can’t take it with ya!
    Unless, mmmm,… is there PEZ in Heaven? or the next dimension, even?
    mmmm,… PEZ-Rat, pull his head back and PEZ would come out, only with bad words printed on them.

    For once I realized the pun almost at once. That doesn’t happen often for me.
