And Now Fred Phelps Hates Sesame Street
June 14, 2010

From Sesame Street‘s Twitter comes this very important observation from Bert:

Well, if I hadn’t had my suspicions about Sesame Street‘s homosexual agenda before, I’d certainly be raising a well-manicured eyebrow now.  So really, it’s only a matter of time before the Westboro Baptist Church is boycotting Sesame Street, which is acceptable as an act of absurdity, but only if there’s video of some crazy accusing Elmo of being a spicy British meatball.

Much love to Dlisted, who picked up on this from BuzzFeed.

Happy Big Four-O, Sesame Street!

In honor of Sesame Street‘s 4oth birthday today, here’s an old skit that I strongly suspect may in fact be the very skit my that my mom claims was one of my absolute favorite:

It’s a disco number.  With a mirror ball.  While this is hardly me dancing around my parents’ bedroom to The Nutcracker or straddling my mother’s feather duster and pretending I was the Wicked Witch of the West, this skit is pretty much just a Donna-Summer-inspired muppet away from being yet another instance of my incredibly gay childhood. 

And for that bit of fabulous in my wee formative years, I thank you, Sesame Street.  Happy birthday!

UPDATE (11/6/09): After talking with my mother, it seems as though this is unfortunately not the specific skit I was looking for; however, it should be noted that said skit from my youth starred Bert and Ernie.  Infer from that what you will.

UPDATE (11/9/09): So this is the skit after all.  And my mother used “OMG” in her comment to confirm.  All is well in the interwebiverse.
