Will George and Bungle join Rainbow alliance?

Byline: STATESIDE With US Editor Christopher Bucktin

THE New Yorker magazine celebrated the US Supreme Court's historic ruling on gay marriage by outing Bert and Ernie.

The front cover entitled "Bert and Ernie''s Moment Of Joy," left, showed the two Sesame Street characters snuggling together on the couch as they watch the landmark rulings on television.

The show has long denied the two were anything more than friends, saying two years ago that the pair "do not have a sexual orientation".

It came just days after US judges threw out part of a law that denied hundreds of federal benefits to same-sex couples.

Britain is still debating whether to allow gay marriage, a move I think is long overdue, however it does make me wonder when it finally does get passed will George and Bungle be so brave?
