Bert & Ernie are muppets

Sesame Street – Despite social pressure, Bert and Ernie decide they aren’t going to allow the Sesamestreet government to dictate the nature of their relationship by getting married. Love and friendship is a relationship between people, not between people and the government and just as real without marriage.

The Sesamestreet Government responded on Facebook saying that Bert and Ernie are the ones that are not real:

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.”

Ernie responded to the accusation of just being a political muppet and being denied the right to have a sexual orientation by the Sesame Street regime by sticking a banana in his ear. “If it works against crocodiles, it works against these government parasites.” When told that there aren’t any crocodiles in Sesame Street, he stated “See. It works perfectly!”
