Have You Seen This Upcoming Cover Of ‘The New Yorker’?


You’ll have to read the rest of the magazine through your own tears.

“Bert and Ernie’s Moment of Joy” is the upcoming cover of The New Yorker as the magazine celebrates the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. Jack Hunter, the artist who made the cover, said, “this is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.”

Long speculated to be a gay couple, Bert and Ernie have given us so much when we were growing up, of course this image of them witnessing a historic moment is moving. Puppets or not, these are our people.
