The Gaily News: No gay wedding for Bert and Ernie

After much speculation over whether Bert and Ernie would marry now that gay nuptials are legal in New York, "Sesame Street" officials say there won't be a gay wedding on the show because the two aren't gay, just longtime best friends and roommates. Despite the circulation of an online petition calling for the pair to tie the knot, Sesame Workshop said in a statement on its Facebook page that "...they remain puppets and do not have a sexual orientation." Clearly, they've never seen Avenue Q.
