11. But aren't Ms. Piggy and Kermit str8?
Oh yeah, it's OK so long as the sexual orientation is one that everyone accepts, but when it's gay people, not so much, right?

Either Bert is a bear, or he's not gay. No good self-respecting gay man allows his unibrow to untrimmed.
However, I think we all know Ernie is gay.
