Beware the evil influence of dreaded homosexual Muppets!

   The Rev. Joe Chambers of Charlotte, N.C., who is always ready to
denounce evil sex wherever he imagines it, says TV Muppets Bert and Ernie
are homosexuals.
   Chambers says the two share a bedroom and clothes, cook and vacation
together and are "effeminate." Well, hey, Joe, we can't all have that John
Wayne machismo like you've got, pal.
   See, Joe, there's something we've got to point out to you here. You see,
Bert and Ernie can't really be gay because - and we know this is a
difficult concept for you - they're PUPPETS! They aren't REAL! They don't
have any, uh ... well, they don't have any ... well, they're kind of like
you, Joe. Except they don't THINK about it all the time.
   Come on, Joe. If you can get your mind off it once in a while you won't
get so worked up.

   Oh Bertie, you are really grand,
   But your shirt has something up it;
   And that something looks like some guy's hand
   - It's lucky you're a Muppet.

   But there's nothing else beneath your shirt,
   You're sexless as a Hobbit;
   I fear that you are worse off, Bert,
   Than even John Wayne Bobbitt.
