Default Bert and Ernie Love Scandal...

I for one think the whole debate is stupid and diluted. But some people think otherwise, so I'm putting this out there so I can see what you think.

Now that that's out there, for those who don't know, there's been quite a large internet movement to sign an online petition for Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street to get married on the show.

The Children's Television Workshop respectfully declined the matter in saying:

"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." - CTW Productions
So though, I personally believe Sesame Street is doing the right thing in not having the marriage on air. What do you think?

(*I threw in a poll, because people like polls)
