Moment of Joy

July 1st, 2013 by in Artsy Sh*t

A year-old post by artist Jack Hunter (in response to Obama’s evolving views regarding gay marriage) has been altered for this week’s The New Yorker in response to last week’s wins for marriage equality. While the official word on Bert and Ernie is that they’re best friends, Hunter doesn’t seem to mind:

While I’m certainly not the first person to speculate about Bert & Ernie’s more personal and private relationship, I thought they were well suited to represent how a lot of gay couples must have felt hearing Obama’s comments…after all, they’ve been together for almost 50 years…as “just friends” or otherwise.
