NEW YORK – Sesame Street is going to have a gay wedding for Bert and Ernie.
Now that New York State has legalized same sex marriage, Sesame Street decided it is time for Bert and Ernie to admit that they are gay and tie the knot.
An organization called “Change.org” proposed the idea.
At first Sesame Street denied that they would be holding the wedding, but this morning sources closes to people on “the street” say that the wedding “is going down.”
“They’re keeping it quiet,” said Cookie Monster. “They were going to have this big bash, but now it’s just gonna be a small thing. It’s still gonna be hip. And I talked them into passing on the cake and going with cookies.”
Cookie Monster took at jab at Michelle Obama, “I hope she’s not invited. She’s been a real drag the last year, talking about vegetables and fruits. Not cool.”
Viewers had wondered for a long time questions if the o the bosom buddies were, in fact, gay.
For decades the pair have shared a close friendship, a bedroom in a small apartment with separate beds. (The duo even wear similar striped shirts.)
Sesame Street, however, publicly denies that they are gay. They issued this statement:
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.
But, insiders say that they are, in fact, gay and that the wedding is going on. “Sesame Street isn’t ready to out them. But they’ve been lovers forever,” said a source close to Big Bird.
The wedding will be private, but WWN has made an exclusive agreement with Elmo to provide details.
