Big Chunk has been talking up a storm for the past week or two. All kinds of new words. He can say his name-so so cute! And he can say Elmo. It’s so sweet that I’m compelled to point to everything that we own with Elmo on it (that’s a lot of stuff) and say “Big Chunk, who is this?” And he answers over and over again in the softest, innocent and most angelic voice that you’ve ever heard, “Homo.” Yep. Homo.
Now, I didn’t know that Elmo was gay but apparently Big Chunk has a well developed gaydar.
This got me thinking…As all inclusive and multi cultural as Sesame Street is -it doesn’t have any gay characters. Well, there are no openly gay characters anyway. Nobody with two mommies or two daddies. There are a couple that I’m pretty sure are still in the closet though. Three words- Bert and Ernie. Am I right or am I right? They live together, sleep in the same room (separate beds though-Bert probably is a blanket hog) and they take baths together.
Somebody needs to tell Bert and Ernie that they no more have us fooled that Clay Aiken and Ricky Martin did. So, Bert and Ernie grab your feather boas, put on your big girl panties and come on out of that closet! We’ll still love ya’ll!
La-la-la-la. La-la-la-la Homo’s World.
