Just Friends

 

News that I missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:

GLENDALE, CA—Writers for VeggieTales have confirmed to press that stars Bob and Larry are accountability partners and nothing more. 

The statement came after progressive outrage over Sesame Street’s confirmation that Bert and Ernie are just friends. Liberals quickly began searching for other gay couples for children to look up to in animated kids’ shows, and latched onto Bob and Larry’s friendly relationship as a possible target.

“No, Bob and Larry really are just good friends who go out for coffee and talk about their Christian walk,” said one representative. “Seriously, don’t you people have anything better to do?” The rep pointed out that Bob and Larry regularly study the Bible at coffee shops and discuss their fight against sin, closing with prayer for one another to live as good witnesses for Christ on an increasingly secularized kitchen counter.

Go here to read the rest.  Bert and Ernie have confirmed that Bob and Larry are just regular guys like them, albeit tastier.

  1. Two facts about those people explain it all.

    One, they politicize everything.

    Two, they respond to the slightest disagreement with anger and hatred.

    You’re welcome.

  2. A famous man once said, “Justice delayed is justice denied.”

    Dispatches from the higher education apocalypse (seen on Instapundit) Student editor fired from university journal for retweeting “Women don’t have penises.”

    In utter other news, superannuated GOP senator and craven coward Grassley granted Chrissie Ballsey Fraud an extension on appearing until The Second Coming Of Christ.

  3. For those who are interested: Yes, this is based on a story in the “real” news recently. See https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/18/entertainment/bert-and-ernie-not-gay/index.html. Frankly, the whole question never made much sense to me, since I have never been sure just what age Bert and Ernie are supposed to be. I’ve always thought they were slightly older children, maybe about the 4th grade level — more Electric Company in age than Sesame Street. They are not shown going to school, but they are not shown going to work, either; no parents or guardians are ever seen, but only a few child muppets are ever shown with parents. Frankly, the idea that they share a room in an orphanage makes more sense than the idea of them being young adults.
