Bulletin: Sesame Street declares Bert and Ernie are NOT GAY -- and won't be getting married

Bert and Ernie won't be marrying each other because they are NOT GAY!

So say the folks at Sesame Street who today issued the following statement in the wake of Internet rumors that the two Muppets were madly in love and about to wed:

"Bert and Ernie are best friends.  They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.

Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets™ do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation."

That is Good News indeed :)

Good News indeed !

Our civilization is doomed.

However Mr Noodles and his late brother Mr Noodles were both gay and the latter died of AIDS. Seriously. It's true. Add that to your list of true facts that Elmo never told you.

WWell, they dodged that issue without going one way or the other. Just as well. Kids have a lifetime to be brainwashed into thinking that being a sick perverted sexual deviant is ok. At least let their preschool years be innocent.
