Oscar the Grouch and the Cookie Monster. Totally OTP.

There’s been this thing recently about Bert and Ernie getting married — or not actually as the Sesame Workshop claims they are just friends (which is fine) and takes pains to point out that they’re ‘just puppets’ so they don’t have a sexual orientation (which is a bit ridiculous. They’re characters, of course they have one. They can be asexual if the show prefers but that’s still an orientation).Bert and Ernie posing for a formal portrait with their rubber ducky

But when I woke up this morning (with a headache — seriously, why?) I was having this thought…

Maybe Bert and Ernie are just friends, maybe their relationship really isn’t like that, maybe it is and they’re just not that interested in the piece of paper. I don’t care. They’re cool and all, but they’ve never been my favourite characters.

Forget about Bert and Ernie… Let’s talk the Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch.

They’re awesome. And they might not be a couple now, but couldn’t they be? I think they’re perfect for each other. They’re both apparently bad influences. And I know Oscar’s always been a bit gruff with him, but he’s a bit gruff with everyone. I think Ocar pushes people away, but deep down he wants someone who’ll appreciate him and his mess. Someone who’ll even help create it, make a mess of their own. Like with cookie crumbs everywhere. Someome who will embrace his own philosphy of life — personal happiness above societal rules. A gruff kind of caring through sharing his own loves (in his case mess, in Cookie’s case cookies).

If Bert and Ernie want to keep sleeping in separate beds and doing their thing (whatever it is) just they way they are, more power to them. But come on guys, let’s get Oscar and Cookie together. What do you say?
