    I don’t know much about furs. How many Chinchillas does it take to make a coat?!?! Fifty? One hundred? Five hundred for a full length coat?

    However much it takes the price is never enough i mean your taking a LIFE!!!

    Just think, the Chinchilla you skin might have written the Great American Novel or cured a disease.

    MuFFinzslol probably didn’t read that last one since they threw red paint on their monitor in protest.

    Ever met a chincilla in person? Mean, nasty, evil-tempered little rats. Not much of a loss, though I will say killing something you’re not going to eat is a bit bad for the karma.

    Leather on the other hand makes no end of sense as a garment as well as for use in industrial equipment. If you’re going to eat it use it all.

    My chin’s name is Andy. He lived through Katrina with me. He is the most even tempered, funny and loving pet I’ve ever had, but is now very scared of wind. He’s out a lot, but heads right for his cage when the wind starts to howl. He’s trained to go either in his cage or the bathtub. He wakes me up every day, looking for his breakfast, a break from his timothy hay and pellets – he loves spoon size shredded wheat and will start to weave my hair if I don’t wake up fast enough. He flew with me to Washington State after the hurricane and when I picked up his carrier at the airport, all he did was give me a really dirty look, a nip then settled in my lap. I cannot imagine anyone wanting to hurt one of these social and sweet critters.

    Chinchillas are beautiful very intelligent creatures. I can’t imagine doing this to any of mine.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I personally love my chinchilla coat. I mean, it keeps me warm in winter, and hey, I heard they make a tasty soup.

    I’m a fifty year old man and very lonely. When I go home, my pet chinchilla Fluffy squeals with what appears to be delight upon seeing me. Little does it know how lonely I REALLY AM…

    well,Maybe chinchilla fur coats are nice. but don’t you feel sorry for those animals?they are harmless and cute and also really nice to hold!I Really can’t imagine killing one of my chinchillas.Whenever I Am upset,my chinchillas would always hug my finger,as if trying to comfort me.I Really cannot think of myself killing one of my chinchillas,if I did, I Must be a beast!

  11. [...] height of luxury. Surely anyone raising chinchillas would be able to rake in the money with this “easy” cash crop. [No, really.  Go click the link! I’ll [...]

  12. Colleen says: August 26, 20085:21 pm

    These animals are loving, intelligent,and have their own personalities like us. No coat would be worth killing any of these awesome creatures. You should be ashamed of your “easy” cash crop.

  13. Charlie says: August 27, 20082:08 pm

    Colleen: You do realize this ad is 55 years old, and that I don’t actually sell chinchillas, right?

  14. SYANNE says: September 11, 20084:05 pm

    YOU ARE REALLY BAD PEOPLE AND YOU SHOULD STOP KILLING THESE ANIMALS AND WHAT IF THAT WERE YOU WOULD YOU BE ALRIGHT ABOUT THAT NO AND THATS WHY YOU SHOULD STOP BECAUSE THAT IS NOT RIGHT THESE CHINCHILAS ARE NOT YOUR “CASH CROP” ITS PEPOLES PETS AND THATS WHY THEY ARE REALLY HARD TO FIND BECAUSE YOU ARE KILLING THEM THAT IS WRONG YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOUR SELF AND STOP USEING THESE ANIMALS FOR COATS AND ALL YOU ARE DOIN IS MAKE ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD VERY SAD IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT MONEY OR CASH ITS ABOUT THE ANIMALS, FEELINGS, LIVES, AND ONE LAST VERY INPORTANT THING ITS NOT JUST ALL ABOUT YOU ITS ABOUT US AND OUR FEELINGS TOO AND MY LUNCH ROOM IN SCHOOL SAY TO ” BE KIND AND NOT MEAN” AND YOU GUYS SHOULD FOLLOW THAT RULE LIKE I HAVE TO BUT YOU ARE MAKIN ME WRIGHT THIS BAD NOTE BECAUSE YOU ARE MAKIN ME MAD,SAD,ANGRY,AND CRY YOU GUYS ARE WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. SYANNE says: September 11, 20084:22 pm

    charlie: you should apoligize to my stepmom colleen because that was rude next time think before you wright and they still make fur coats and these animals are helpless and cute

  16. Charlie says: September 11, 20085:25 pm

    SYANNE: I’m not sure what you are saying I did wrong. How was I rude? The ad is 55 years old. Have you actually looked at any of the other pages on this site? I post tons of stuff every day, it doesn’t mean I’m promoting those items. I posted this item as well. That doesn’t mean I endorse kilt wearing.

  17. SYANNE says: September 13, 20082:13 pm

    sorry

  18. Rettopyrrah says: November 6, 200810:48 pm

    Anyone that would endorse anything like this should be treated exactly the same as they treat the poor animals. It takes dozens of chinchillas to make one of these ‘wonderful, warm’ coats you wear. Do you have any IDEA how these animals are treated before they are used to make garments?! How would you like to be stuck in a room the size of a port-a-potty, left completely alone, with no one talking, looking, or touching you, and then just have your neck snapped to end you ‘wonderful’ life? Or better yet plugged into an electrical socket?! Chinchillas need space to move and room to jump, these farms lock them in cages barely big enough for them to turn around in and nearly touching their heads. All of these cages are stacked on top of eachother and they don’t even keep more than one to a cage so they could at least socialize with eachother. No one ever touches them because it might damage the quality of their fur. And then to completely destroy the idea of HUMANE TREATMENT. They either hold their head and tail and then yank up to snap their necks or they connect electrodes to their ear and foot and then PLUG THEM INTO A WALL!!!! I don’t care if you don’t support the practice, by posting this you very obviously find it either intresting, or amusing, something people would be interested in. Wether or not you would personally buy the coat or kill the creature isn’t in question. You are the SUPPORTING idea buy posting it!

  19. brianna says: November 12, 20081:45 pm

    i have a pet chinchilla and they are amazing pets mabe you people who make chinchilla into coats deserve to die also. you should not have this torcher posted on this site for people to read

  20. bobonono says: November 17, 20084:26 pm

    ok people…I’m against killing animals for fashion too….I wouldn’t hesitate to shoot a deer though, cuz their meat is delish…but SERIOUSLY…the ad is over half a century old…give the lady a break, she already said she’s not promoting the breeding/killing/pelting of Chinchillas. CHILL.

  21. Melissa says: November 25, 20086:57 pm

    I am DISGUSTED!!!!!! How in your right mind could you kill such an adorable sweet little creature for a freaking coat. There is plenty of cotton out there to keep you horrible murderers warm. And I am not referring to the ad, I am referring to you jerks that have commented.

  22. rachel says: November 26, 20087:07 am

    I think it is cruel to wear chinchillas.all of you that are protesting are right,chinchillas are smart,adorable,and kind.they may have the softest fur in the world, but that doesnt give us the right to kill them!if you wouldn’t do it to an human,dont do it to an animal.you evil cruel and sick people need to get a life,wearing fur is not only cruel,it is gross!it is like wearing meat, then it gets all rotten,and it smells bad!ew!people who wear fur should stop right now.

  23. Mike says: November 26, 200810:20 am

    Thank you Melissa, rachel, I needed a laugh this morning.

  24. Charlie says: November 26, 20081:36 pm

    Do they actually teach English in schools anymore? While Rachel certainly does not have the worst grammar or spelling in this thread she does win my award for the best impression of Charley from the book Flowers for Algernon. I remember being tickled pink by the the chapter where he first learns about punctuation and every, other word, is , followed by, a comma. period or exclamation point!

  25. jayessell says: November 26, 20087:49 pm

    Dang!
    I can’t find any clips of SNL’s Rovco Chinch Ranch.
    It’s a blender (a separator, actually) that produces pelts and hamburger meat.

    Mmmmm! That’s great chinch!

  26. Warren says: December 26, 20084:57 pm

    I like how the price tag looks like a chain saw.

    A huge, gore-covered chain saw.

    Tearing into the helpless flesh of an innocent chinchilla, whose suffering this blog endorses, along with GLOBAL WARMING which will be caused by all the carbon-monoxide outgassing from the chain saws.

    Which are also bad like this blog because they (chain saws) are used to cut down trees. Take the b out of blogger and you have logger! Coincidence?

    O, the horror!

    (PS: Eat more chinchillas!)

  27. John says: January 28, 20099:37 am

    I bought a chinchilla for my daughter near 5 years ago . . . great pet! My uncle bought a chinchilla coat for my aunt around the same time . . . great coat! Really people, as cool a pet as it may make, it’s an animal. An animal can not have a PERSONality . . it’s not a person! Now I will admit, I like my daughter’s chinchilla quite a bit more than most of the people I know, but I’m an anti-social, people phobic, animal eating, leather wearing, slightly crazy American. The only reason humans are civilized is because we say we are. Here’s a little reality check . . . humans are the most UNcivilized animal on the planet. We terrorize EVERY living thing including other humans. Having said all that, I’m just glad that we evolved with thumbs and a superior brain and that we wear chinchilla coats and the chinchillas don’t wear human coats!

  28. Richard says: June 26, 20093:16 pm

    I raise chinchillas and I do euthanize them humanely. They feed my dogs and I process the pelt. They are not wasted as the body is eaten, the pelt is used and the animals are well cared for.
    All of you that do not agree to euthanizing chinchillas and using their pelt, you have right to your opinion, but I have a right to mine. We live in a free country and nobody is going to tell me I’m wrong. If it is unlawful to euthanize my chinchilla for food and pelt, I’ll stop, if not, I won’t. By the way, I do make money off the chinchillas and I am glad I do.

  29. Firebrand38 says: September 9, 20096:55 pm

    Sorry folks, best I could do was The Bassomatic http://www.nbc.com/Satu…

    And the way all of the idiots screaming about skinning people alive to show their compassion for rodents from an AD FROM 1952 reminds me of Eric Rudolph representing his sanctity for human life by planting bombs.

    But you made Charlie laugh which is a good thing.

  30. Ba Marley says: October 27, 20101:21 am

    The get-rich-quick ad is hilarious. But I have to say that these comments are out of this world – the funniest cynical satire I’ve ever read. Did one person think up all this or a team of wild-and-crazies? It’s been a long time since I’ve had such a laugh. uh, please don’t tell me it’s real. know how, know way.

    Because I understand not everyone speaks English. And everyone makes mistakes in grammar & spelling; we all write fast on the web. The “new” way of abbreviations, initials and whatknot adds to the confusion, of course. Oversight, haste & English as second (or 3rd, 4th, etc) language all excusable. But WTF (if these comments ARE real)!! Seems like alot of people can’t write and/or think. Nevermind research at grade-school level. Or apply a minute particle of common sense.

    Chinchillas are endangered. Not because of pelt-raising ranches or fur coat wearers. Many factors contribute to the endangerment – yes, even pet-owning of chinches. These little animals deserve great respect. That respect is likely given by most who contact them – either as pets or as food or as clothing. Animals help people & people help animals (even when animals are part of feeding-clothing humans & other animals). If it wasn’t for these human industries, with chinchillas or cows or chickens … most of these animals wouldn’t even have a life.

    Native Americans have great respect for Mother Earth – from the rocks to the people (who seem to have rocks for brains sometimes) – and the rest of us non-Native-Americans would do well to use their style for example. With great respect for all given for us as humans, and in return, we as humans have great responsibility to protect the creatures & critters & beasts & bears, one & all.

    Stop the true violence – wars that pollute the earth & kill everything in their path – people, animals, plants, buildings, lakes, rivers, streams, oceans. Wars are only for greed – so those who believe themselves better than others; those who don’t want to work; those who do want to live off of other people’s money (bankers, politicians, bureaucrats) can make huge money while culling the population of the lower echelons, the dregs of society. Because if the war doesn’t kill ‘em (soldiers, civilians, “collateral” damage), the V.A. will. The last president of the US called himself the “war” president. This new president continues what the “war” president started. While We the People hoped for change, this new boss same as old boss. Everywhere is war. War on Drugs. War on Terra.

    Stop the hypocrisy of damning chinchilla farmers & chinchilla users (people with chinchilla pets, coats, hats, and who eat chinchilla meat or feed it to other animals). If you use leather, drink milk, stuff with down/feathers, or wear wool, or get vaccinated – then you are doing the EXACT same thing as chinchilla farmers & fur coat wearers. But you’re being a hypocrite about it.

    Instead of supporting war & hypocrisy,

    let’s start building peace, honesty & sincerely sustainable communities, working together to restore this great Republic – the united states of America. Let’s work together & stand together in non-compliance with those who promote this great country as a “democracy” and who promote stupidity by even suggesting We the People will continue on this destructive slippery slope. Non-compliance. Cooperation. Denounce Democracy – Respect our Republic!

    Hey Ba Marley:

    Please check your punctuation, spelling & grammar and resubmit.

    Thank you,

    John

    I am seriously disgusted that you would kill animals and wear them. I have a 3month old Chinchilla and I’m getting another in two weeks. I love my chinchilla to bits and can’t even imagine someone else wearing her fur. I can’t believe someone even has the nerve to harm any creature when they can’t even stand up for themselves. It is horrific.

  33. Nomen Nescio says: December 23, 20112:55 pm

    i think our good bloghost may have invented a free energy machine. now if we could just figure out how to harness the indignation of overzealous animal-rights people who post irate comments half a century too late and drive a generator with it, we’ll have electricity truly too cheap to meter.
