Chipmunks Are Money Grubbing Whores. (Enjoy THAT In Your Browser History)

Somehow LESS gay than the other Chippendales.

Somehow LESS gay than the other Chippendales.

Because it’s Throwback Thursday, I’m going to recount a conversation that took place, last year, between myself and my, then, nine-year-old. We were discussing his new teacher, who had a strong Texas accent, which apparently reminded him of the twang of a contestant on The Amazing Race.

Liam: “His voice sounded like that Chippendale from Amazing Race.”

Me: “Um…please don’t tell him that.”

Liam: “Why? And what IS a Chippendale anyway?”

Me: (pause…calculating my options, before giving in to the truth) “They are men who dance in their underwear. It’s inappropriate.”

Liam: “Why do they dance in their underwear?”

Me: (hating my life) “For money.”

Liam: “Then why are they named after chipmunks?”

Me: “They’re not…I’ll explain it when I’m not driving.”

Liam: “Maybe it’s because none of them wear pants.”
