I think people are missing the point with this story. It isn't about showing children diversity or tolerance of other people. It's about some nut named Lair Scott wanting his 15 mins. of fame. Now that he's had it I hope he goes away. They're puppets not people!

"They're puppets not people! "


thank you cindy! they are puppets, and, fictional. (remember the dan quayle-murphy brown dustup about her 'unwed parenthood?" she too, was fictional.
do the 3 or 4 yr old little kids even THINK that they might be gay? do kids that age even know what that means?
Holey toledo.
and what about tinkywinky or whatever that was that dead rev falwell was all crazed about. also FICTIONAL!

Next you're going to tell me Smirfs, Tele Tubbies, fairy's and Donald Trump are not real.

Lots of fairies in San Francisco, and the Donald is real (although I'm not sure about his hair).

What's a "smirf"?

What they really need is to have a intervention for cookie monster!

Nuts, we won't get to see one partner push a piece of cake into the other's face?

One of the reports on the B&E buddies involved a puppet and two newscasters who gave a straight, err, normal interview.

The puppet being interviewed said that puppets don't have an orientation, and even if they did it would be illegal for any puppets to get married in all fifty states.

The same report went on to ask if Snooki and Kermit were, in fact, an item.

Kibby F5, we need to talk about Santa Claus and The Easter Bunny.

wow, so it's a shotgun wedding?!

I remeber being told that one reason I got the Bert puppet for Christmas was that Ernie was sold out. Truth be told, I'm more of a Bert.

They're not just puppets, Cindy. They are puppets with the emotional maturity of children. It has nothing to do with being gay and everything to do with not being age appropriate.

are Santa and the Easter Bunny getting married too?

and what exactly happened to Mrs. Claus?

I think we need one of those great detectives like Barney Miller, Barnaby Jones, or Columbo to investigate!

I really hate people who hijack innocents to flog their own agenda.

Life imitates art imitating art? Anyone see the episode of Parks and Recreation when the penguins got married?

funny man I'm not sure about Santa or the Easter Bunny getting married but I do know that Mrs. Claus was the inspiration for Santa's "Ho, ho, ho."

bwaahhhhaa, cindy.
i'm jewish - we dont have these fictional holiday characters.
but you wouldnt believe what's in our bible.
