Alvin and the Chipmunks:What would you do if you found singing chipmunks?

United States
July 24, 2008 1:14am CST
Recently me,my fiance and my mother were watching the movie Alvin and the Chipmunks, which is a really good movie by the way,and I would recommend it to anyone who has not seen it but I will not give the plot away here and if you want to know exactly what happens you will have to watch the movie,I myself has always liked Alvin,because he is witty and I like the way he thinks,my fiance has always liked Theodore because he is the young innocent one who does what he brothers tell him,and while watching the movie I got to thinking and all of a sudden it hit me like a bolt of lightning that I should pose a question to all the mylotters out there,what would you do if you found talking/singing chipmunks?Would you exploit there talents to make you rich?Would you treat them like your children and take care of them?Would you treat them like clients and manage their careers and do nothing else?Or would you be freaked out and throw them out and tell them to never come back?If I were in the shoes of Dave Suvil and I found three singing chipmunks basically just looking for a family,at first I would be freaked out and I would not know what to say,but after I calmed down I would take them in and treat them like members of mine and my fiances family,and I would probably also manage their singing career,so that way we would make some money,even though I would not push them to hard, or make them do any performances that they did not want to do,and I would definitely make sure I did not exploit them,I will appreciate all responses I get to this discussion,just like with all the other discussions I post on this more that excellent site,I will appreciate anyone who takes this discussion seriously and gives me truthful honest answers,and I promise that I will comment on all responses,which my comments will be determined by how long and how much quality is put into each response,have a great day.

I would be freaked out like you when I found those chipmunks singing. I doubt I would be volunteering to take care of them. I like watching such talking animals but I think I would be terrified to see them in real life. But if they would insist that I take care of them, and they have proven they are will bring me mess, I think I would give in. But I think I would keep this a secret. I don't want people to found out that I am talking to chipmunks. Have a nice day!

I have not seen that movie yet and will look out for it soon. I would certainly get so excited to come across singing chipmunks. I can imagine how adorable and cute to have such amazing unique creatures. I would rare them as my own and enjoy, have fun with them and share their talents, joy with my friends and whoever that appreciate them. I would not exploit them to make me rich or famous. And I do wish they will bring happiness and inspiration to everyone that hears them. If only this could be true Cheers and happy posting.

If ever I found singing Chipmunks, I would keep them for sure and treat them like part of my family... I'll take good care of them, bathe them, give them a nice room.. But I want them to do something for me of course. If they could make me rich, why not let them sing worldwide? But I would definitely manage their careers in the proper way. I wont let anyone hurt them or abuse them. I will never hurt/abuse them myself too.

If I found talking chipmunks first I would want to check that I could hear okay, and then I would probably be wanting to check my vision as well, after that a nice visit to the psychiatrist would be in order. I would not exploit their talents if I did choose to let them in the house, but I would definitely want to put them in a secure environment wherein they could perform for an audience of maybe a few people at a time. It may be a well ventilated small room where a person could insert a quarter and a light in the room, or a sound would alert the chipmunks to sing. I think that you can clearly see that I would treat them well, and maybe even call them our pets.

I can understand that if you found talking chipmunks that first you would want to check your hearing and your vision,and that next would be a psychiatrist visit,and I know you would not exploit their talents if you chose to let them in the house,and that is a good idea to put them in a secure environment where they can perform for a few people at a time,and yeah it is a good idea to put them in a ventilated small room,where a person can insert a quarter and a light or a sound would alert the chipmunks to sing,and I know you would treat them well,and maybe even call them our pets,I love you with all my heart and soul,thanks for responding,have a great day,good luck in your life,and Happy Posting Baby.

I would sell it on ebay. If I could sell some white trash for $10.45 I know I could get at least $75 for a singing chipmunk. I couldn't keep it. That wouldn't fly with the cats.

I figured selling it on ebay would be funny. If I did encounter one I would leave it where it is. Life is short and I do what I do. I have no time or interest in managing a singing chipmunk's career. If I wanted to manage an artist's career, that is what I would be doing. Basically I wouldn't let it change my life.

Yeah selling it on ebay is a pretty unique response,but I am glad to hear that you would just leave it where it is,and yeah life is pretty short,and I can understand that you would not want to waste time managing a singing chipmunks career,and if you wanted to manage a career you would manage a real artist or maybe even your own, thanks for responding,have a great day,good luck in your life,and Happy Posting.

Being I'm a big animal lover, I'd probably take them in after the inital shock. I would take them around to children's hospitals, senior centers,etc. If they could make me some money, why not!!!!! I wouldn't push them either. I'd give them their own room, take them to the park so they could get some fresh air and get back into nature so they can do the ususal chipmonk things. Perhaps they would want to visit some of their friends or family members so they can brag about their new digs and life.If they wanted to go back to their roots I wouldn't stop them.

If I would see unique chipmunks, I would really take good care of them. I want them to multiply to add up to their population. If their number multiplies, I would make a little museum of some sort so people can view them as well. That would be so interesting.
