Thinking About Bert and Ernie

Must we really be subjected to speculation about whether two puppets are gay or straight?

And if so, who’s next?

“Hey, Rock, wanna see me pull a rabbit out of my hat?”
“That wasn’t what you pulled out last night, Bullwinkle.”

Do we need to ponder Rocky and Bullwinkle?  Yogi and Boo Boo?

Batman and Robin?  (Okay, The Curmudgeon concedes that a LOT of people have some thoughts about that particular dynamic duo.)

For that matter, didn’t those Three Stooges ALWAYS sleep together?

And Sherman and Mr. Peabody:  was Mr. Peabody some kind of pedophile?

Can’t they just be…Bert and Ernie, for crying out loud?
