Thursday Thinker 3


It's that time of the week - a 'Thinker' post! This week I think Ernie and Bert should decide the US Election.

Ernie and Bert have a knack of grappling with complex issues and boiling them down to the essentials in about three minutes; they see all sides, weigh up the options, consider the outcomes, challenge pre-conceptions and then agree on a choice and get back to whatever else is vexing their day.

But do you have a Rubber Duckie? Is it chubby? Do you sing to it in the bath? Are you awfully fond of it?

Too right D'ang! I have a rubber duckie indeed.

I think you have an idea there. Unfortunately since many closed minded people here in the US think that Burt and Ernie represent a gay couple in a long term relationship, many people would not listen to their ideas.

It never ever occurred to me that E and B were gay but when I Googled for a picture this morning the screen went crazy with homosexual speculation. Mental. Show for little kids (and kids of 36) and people read all sorts of hoo-haa into it.

I shall give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you understood I was referring to Ernie's 'Rubber Duckie' song -- which you can see on Youtube.
