…from AmericaBlog, believe it or not, re: the (officially, at least) sexual orientation-less Bert and Ernie:
How do they explain the weddings, or references to weddings, of the other obviously heterosexual Muppets? I know it sounds like I’m joking, but I’m not. The Muppets have a clear heterosexual subtext, so let’s not pretend they’re sexual orientation neutral, because they’re not.
A good point – and one which Muppet, Inc., really can’t explain away with the same punchline that ends the joke about why Kermit can’t perform oral sex on Miss Piggy.
