This just in, folks: Apparently Bert and Ernie are just friends. Yep, Sesame Street made an official announcement on that. There was at least one petition going around at some point, most notably a change.org petition recently, for Bert and Ernie to get married, and Sesame Street decided to respond instead of leaving everything open for speculation.
The best part: “Bert and Ernie could not be reached for comment because they are not people.”
Now that Bert and Ernie aren’t getting married, can we now think about all those puppets with hands up their bums?
