New Yorker Cover Story Outs Legendarily Reclusive Gay Couple

“It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime,” said Jack Hunter, the artist behind the cover.  “This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.”

Elmo reportedly has mixed emotions in joining the celebration. And there’s no word yet if Evil Islamic Bert will soon be going full jihad on his much more swinging western counterpart.
