Sesame Street: Gay? OK. Girls with Breasts? Not so much.

Today's lesson is brought to you by the letter D.

Bert & Ernie, male non-siblings of indeterminate age live together, parentless, and sleep in the same bedroom. Assuming them to be more than merely creepy, they're obviously gay.

An LA Times Blog reports:
"Sesame Street has always been written on two levels, for the child and adult. We use parodies and celebrity segments to interest adults in the show because we know that a child learns best when co-viewing with a parent or care-giver," the producers said Thursday in a statement.

"We also value our viewer’s opinions and particularly those of parents. In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on You Tube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers. Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on You Tube."

Personally, we always thought Maria was hot:

Just so the record's straight, we don't really think Bert & Ernie are any more gay than my never-married Great-Aunt Sarah, who lived with "Auntie Julia" for 40 years.
