What world do we live in?
Apparently, a world in which NEWSPAPERS – that’s right – newspapers – dedicate HALF a PAGE to aimlessly wondering if BERT and ERNIE are GAY.
That’s right – BERT and ERNIE. Not only are they fictional characters… THEY’RE PUPPETS.
If that hasn’t sunk in yet, let me make it clear: In our war-stricken, overpopulated, over-polluted, time-strained, attention-depleted, starving, homeless, martyr-filled world, we’ve dedicated half a page of valuable newspaper space to the sexuality of two fictional puppets.
And if you hadn’t already realized that newspapers are a complete joke, this should solidify it. With circulation down 5% since April 2010 and declining, it’s only a matter of time before we’re overstocked with glorified fish wrap.
Can’t say that content isn’t part of that problem.
