Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie outed

This is brought to you by the letter “G” — for gay!

The New Yorker magazine “outed” “Sesame Street” characters Bert and Ernie on a new cover — which features the sexually ambiguous duo cuddling on a couch while watching news about this week’s pro-gay-marriage Supreme Court rulings.

The cover shows Bert with his arm around Ernie, sitting in front of a TV that displays an image of the Supreme Court justices.

    David,I want to transform your entry into an “everyone list their fiovrate B&E skit” tromp down memory lane.My fiovrate is when Ernie makes a clay statue of Bert, and Bert’s honored, looks at it, and points out to Ernie that he’s forgotten one thing — the nose. Ernie’s like, “okay, well…” and realizes he’s out of clay. So he yanks Bert’s actual nose off and sticks it on the statue, and Bert’s got a “pinched nose” voice after that!! 🙂
