Mmmmm...MPez3 anyone?

From the "Ummm, okay?" department: the folks who make the culturally iconic Pez candy (not to mention the gazillions of Pez head dispensers) are looking to stick something other than the fruity confections into their candy holders -- specifically, MP3s.

Along with a partner, the Pez folks are working on MP3 players that will look exactly like their classic candy dispensers. Using Samsun memory, they'll be sold in a range of models and come with headphones and a USB cable. No word yet if new heads for the dispensers will include IT industry favs like Bill Gates, Larry Ellison or Steve Ballmer.
