PEZ is a type of rectangular block shaped candies made by the Austrian company of the same name. PEZ™ is most famous for the whimsical mechanical dispensers of the candies. These mechanical dispensers are topped with plastic heads of real and fictional character in countless variations.

In early 2006 two fantasy PEZ™ dispensers with a clay heads were submitted by users of YTMND--one had the head of the late Adolf Hitler and the other was of Charles Manson. Although earlier PEZ™ dispenser fan art has been seen on YTMND and elsewhere on the internet, these two YTMNDs were the flint that ignited the controversy culmuninating in the Get sued by PEZ™ contest.

In May of 2009 the PEZ™ corporation issued two letters insisting that the administrators of YTMND remove the Hitler and Charles Manson fantasy PEZ™ dispensers and refrain from allowing future PEZ™ items to be displayed on YTMND:

Madam / Sir,
we address this letter to you as we have noticed a "Hitler PEZ Dispenser" on your website.
As this "Hitler PEZ Dispenser" is a self-made fake dispenser, against any humor or taste, not
affiliated with PEZ and furthermore an obvious infringement of various statutes and rights, including
intellectual :property, plus an insult, we do ask you to instantly remove this photo and any article
plus reference to the "Hitler PEZ Dispenser" from your website.
Any future display of any such fake and/or insulting PEZ items shall be refrained from.
We may set a deadline till May 15th, 2009, and do ask for your immediate cooperation in this regard,
as otherwise legal measures have to be taken.
Yours sincerely,
Gerda Jenatschek

Max responded by issuing a Get sued by PEZ™ contest with the prize being a possible lawsuit. The YTMND community submitted over 100 sites before the contest stopped accepting new submissions. As of June 4th, 2009 the users of YTMND are still unaware if any prize will be given out(no legal measures have be taken). Cliffington88's historyofpez.ytmnd.com currently holds the top spot.
