Should Sesame Street’s Bert And Ernie Get Married?

by | 10th, August 2011

SESAME STREET is one of the most forward thinking, progressive shows around. It’s featured civil rights speeches, tackled racism, people talking about their AIDS, poverty… and now, people are calling for it to feature a gay marriage.

And the likely candidates are Bert and Ernie, and there’s even a petition demanding it. They already share a bed and rubber ducky would make an excellent best man.

Anyway, the petition comes from Change.org who want the puppets to teach our children that same-sex marriage is okay. Which it isn’t of course. All marriages are stupid aren’t they? You’d have to be nuts to want to get the State involved in your love.

Either way, Sesame Street won’t be going ahead with it. A spokesperson for the show insisted that the loveable duo are:

“best friends with no sexual orientation.”

And that they were created (WHAT?! THEY’RE NOT REAL?!)

“to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.”

So there you have it. We’ve all been denied the climax to potentially the greatest love story ever told. The night-vision honeymoon sex-tape would have been well worth a watch too.
