Ok, the world is definitely going to hell in a hand-basket. Why is it that people want Sesame Streets Bert and Ernie to be gay? Granted they’ve been roomates for over (40) some years. But people understand, they’re puppets and not human. The demands of a petition calling for Bert and Ernie to get married, which has become an internet sensation in the last few years, has been gently denied by the Sesame Street Workshop. Since “Gay-Marriage” is now legal in New York, people feel they should just do it. This isn’t the first time the organization has moved to deny a sexual relationship between their two roommate puppets; in June 2010, a tweet sent from the Sesame Street Twitter account from Bert that said his mohawk was more “mo” than “hawk” was suspected by bloggers to be a sort of coded acknowledgment of their relationship. Bloggers also took as a hint the large number of gay guest stars from that season, to which Sesame Street responded, “We’ve always reached out to a variety of actors and athletes and celebrities to appear on the show, and our programming has always appealed to adults as much as children.” Once again Bert and Ernie are puppets! They don’t even have private parts.
