TTDNST: Chipmunk Whimsy

I am so excited about this week’s Thing That Does Not Suck that I’m sitting here in my comfy chair giggling like a fiend and typing like a higher-than-a-kite chipmunk who’s just gotten back from a titillating date with a gentlemanly wookie.  I found these images on Friday of last week, actually, and it’s been more than a little torturous to keep them to myself all week.

But I did.  Because you guys deserve an awesome Things That Do Not Suck Thursday.  You’ve worked hard, doing what you do, and deserve a dash of nonsense and whimsy to get your weekend off to a good start.  And what could be more whimsical than a storm trooper riding a chipmunk?


According to the guy who took these pictures, these are real.  I guess there are a bunch of wild chipmunks that live in his parent’s backyard and those chipmunks have become quite friendly over the years.  Friendly enough to go on a date with a wookie, I guess.

This is exactly like Lady and the Tramp.

This is exactly like Lady and the Tramp.

But not friendly enough to resist being horrified by the fierceness that is a rampaging Ewok.

Can't you just hear the little chipmunk scream?

There are very few creatures brave enough to be friendly in the face of an irate Ewok.

  1. Being a big fan of both Star Wars and chipmunks, I thoroughly enjoyed this post.

  2. I love the last picture. Not that the others aren’t great, but there’s just something about the last one that is better.

    Ewoks are scary mo-fo’s.

  3. I outgrew posters a couple of years ago, but had I not, I would TOTALLY be dying for these in poster form!

  4. -Delisa, Yay! If it brought a smile to your day then it served its point entirely.

    -Blanche, I KNOW! That one is my favorite too, I’ve never seen a chipmunk look so affronted in my life. Agree with you on the Ewoks too, they mean business.

    -April, No kidding, I’d print this on a huge canvas and hang it in my living room, but I’m not rich enough to be eccentric so I think it would probably just come across as weird.

  5. -Perception, yay! I’m so glad these amused everyone as much as they amused me. As long as things like this exist I reckon we’re doing ok.
