More than just friends? Ernie, Bert drawn into same-sex marriage debate

If you didn’t learn about friendship from Ernie and Bert, chances are your kids - or their friends - did. The Sesame Street pals are yin and yang, and despite their differences, they’re “old buddies” to the end.

Their companionship also has some wondering if the pair might be more than just friends.

Sesame Workshop, which produces Sesame Street, has attempted to quash that notion before, but it’s come up again.

This time the questions are sparked by The New Yorker cover depicting the two in an embrace watching the Supreme Court, which decided two cases allowing for same-sex marriages this week.
