WHY DO THEY NOT MENTION PORN? FIRST THING ANY TEENAGE BOY LOOKS FOR.
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.
Ricky, a muscly hunk, and Rod, a Wall Street Republican, are the first same-sex puppet couple to marry in New York, according to the show’s producers.
The wedding took place at City Hall on Sunday, the first day same-sex marriages are legal in New York. It was held early, in order to make it back for a 3pm matinee.
“To have this finally happen for us – especially so soon after Will and Kate – is unbelievable to me,” Rod said in the statement announcing the engagement. “I realise there are a lot of broken hearts out there now that RIcky and I are off the market – step back, all you chorus boys! – but I’ve known since Day One that Ricky is the husband for me. He’s the furry fellow I want to spend my life with both on and off the stage.”
Avenue Q is an internationally acclaimed musical, tackling themes such as race, internet porn and sex. It is planned to hit France next.
Elsewhere, the St. James Theatre, where the Broadway production of Hair is staged, will invite same-sex couples to be married on stage from tonight.
