Reacting to an online petition calling for Muppets Bert and Ernie to marry, Sesame Street released a statement on its Facebook page explaining that the duo are just friends and do not have a sexual orientation. What do you think?

"It seems like the show is missing a great opportunity to teach preschoolers about sex."

"The petition-writers clearly don't know their Sesame Street history. The construction workers Biff and Sully were the ones who truly pushed an aggressive gay agenda in the 1970s."

"If you're looking for gay puppets, I just finished watching Sexame Streak and I highly recommend it."
