3. Bert/Ernie

Let's get one thing straight: sometimes I ship characters as Best Friends Forever, because friendship romances are awesome, full-stop, the end.

Shocking, I know. But there it is.

Exhibit A: Bert and Ernie. As far as I'm concerned, they are the ultimate in BFFs. I'm not in denial or anything: they are two gay muppets in love, no doubt... but unless they are in Avenue Q or a Peter Jackson movie, they don't have sex. They live in a perpetual summer holiday, filled with collecting stupid shit, playing silly pranks with rubber duckies, and singing about how much they like each other.

I'm pulling ridiculously schmoopy faces and sighing just thinking about it.

Anyway, let's take a trip back in time to some of those classic Bert and Ernie moments.

*happy sigh*

Okay you weirdos, poll time! But first, I have a bone to pick. In Sunday's poll, you picked Bodie over Doyle. Then yesterday, you picked Starbuck over Apollo.

Do I even know you people?!? I mean... what? It's like the very foundation of my understanding of fannish OTPs is crumbling beneath my feet.

So I figure now it's time for a real test: Bert vs Ernie in the ultimate BFF smackdown! Do you prefer Bert, with his whacky chess-playing pet pigeon, and his bottle-cap collecting ways? Or do you prefer Ernie, with his bathtime rubber ducky shenanigans, and his cookie-eating in (Bert's) bed?

Be aware that I shall be watching the results very closely.

Rec time. I have only one fic, but it makes me laugh. It's so (deliberately) earnest, and so in keeping with the show.

I don't really want to read a lot of Bert/Ernie fic, but if you know of good songvids, you are obliged to share! I waaaaaant them! *points to comment button* Gimme links.

You are also welcome to leave recs/links for other ships on the all-ships-welcome post for this week (I'll do a round-up post at the end of each week):
