Gay Match Game: Bert and Ernie Caught 'Playing with Each Other's Ding-Dongs'

Poor Bert and Ernie just got called gay on national television! On tonight's edition of The Match Game on ABC, contestants were asked to fill in the following question: "'Sesame Street' is being rocked by a tabloid scandal. Instead of a rubber ducky, Bert and Ernie were photographed in the bathtub playing with BLANK."

The contestant's answer was "each other," which Jerry O'Connell matched exactly. Niecy Nash's answer "Each other's pee-pee" and Natasha Lyonne's "Each other's ding-dongs" were also counted. Immediately, everyone went the gay route. Very mature!

For the non-matches, Ellie Kemper said, "Big Bird," David Alan Grier said, "Bubbles," and Jack McBrayer answered with something so filthy it was completely censored out. 

Sadly, this is not the first time the beloved childhood characters have been sexualized. They were used in ads for HIV/STD testing, there was a petition for them to get married, and the New Yorker had a cover showing them celebrating the Supreme Court's gay marriage rulings. 

But, despite liberal attempts to make them gay, the former Sesame Street Workshop CEO once said, "They are not gay, they are not straight, they are puppets. They don't exist below the waist."

Thoughts of Bert and Ernie playing with each other only exist in the minds of sick liberals, not behind closed doors on Sesame Street.
