Needless to say, Alvin and the Chipmunks is one of the greatest, most popular franchises of all time. We all look forward to Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and their seasonal shenanigans. BUT HOLD UP. Have we been so blindly passionate about these harmonizing rodents that we overlooked a major flaw in their story?!
HOW COULD WE HAVE MISSED THIS?!
We must correct this egregious error!
not sure why Alvin's name is first most of the other Chipmunks do all the work how did Alvin start getting all the credit. Let's mobilize, 'munks— Adam Rotstein (@madamepotstein) November 10, 2017
Let's brainstorm some possible new names:

Alvin Plus Even More Chipmunks
Alvin and — Get This — Further Chipmunks to Boot
Of course, there will always be Alvin purists...

WHAT ABOUT SIMON AND THEODORE? THIS ISN'T DESTINY'S CHILD AND HE ISN'T BEYONCÉ!— Harley Baker (@FaboooLouLou) November 10, 2017
And it won't stop with Alvin. Everything will be different now. Everything will change:
Growing up as a Muslim-Albanian family with very patriarchal ideas on the way a family is supposed to operate, my idea of what a father should be was a very "man's man" one.
He brings home the bacon, laughs maybe five times a year, and was really into Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorcese movies. Oh, and a Marlboro Red had to be perpetually hanging out the side of his mouth.
Fast forward years later and here I am, dadding it up, and I'm not that, like, at all. The manliest thing I probably do is hit the gym, bro, and not shave my chest hair. Other than that though, I'm nothing like the former generation of "guy's guys" that raised me. Which I'm totally cool with, because I'm already learning special hair braids to try out on my daughter once she gets older. Because her old man might be a North Jersey meathead, but he's going to be a meathead who doesn't mind having tea parties and getting his nails painted with his little girl.
