10 Gay Muppets! FTW!

The rumors have been out there for a loooooong time. Bert and Ernie…maybe a little more than just roommates? And since any gay rumor isn’t complete without a brokeback joke….ba-dum-dum!

But turns out this rumor was more fact than fiction and the happy couple are now out and proud. Even going so far as to tie the knot at a gay pride parade! Mazel tov, boys!

But it got me thinking—could there be more gay Muppets out there just begging to be let out of the closet? Determined to get to the bottom of this, I used my private investigative tools to answer this important question.

 

Elmo

I’m pretty sure we were never supposed to see these pics. Who knew Elmo was the Kim Kardashian of Sesame Street? Insert Mr. Noodle joke here.

 

Big Bird

(source)

A little birdie told me that a big birdie was rocking his rainbow at gay pride this year! That blonde ‘fro isn’t fooling anyone…am I right? Need further proof? He’s actually been captured saying it in print!

(source)

Case closed.

 

Oscar The Grouch

(source)

This could explain everything! I mean I’d be a grouch too if I had to constantly hide who I was from the world. This also explains his boy-crush on Tinky Winky.

 

Miss Piggy

Would you be surprised to find out that Miss Piggy is actually the drag superstar alter-ego of Pittsburgh’s own Bob Kowalski? I wouldn’t! I’ve always thought Miss Piggy was a gay man, because no woman is that fabulous! There are many imitators but only one Miss Piggy! Sorry fellas— but we like bacon not fakin’.

Grover

He may not be 100% gay but apparently he has….experimented. Insert ‘Tickle Me Elmo’ joke here.

 

Kermit The Frog

(source)

Hello! He sings songs about making rainbow connections! Need more proof… Lady Gaga would not be caught dead in straight Muppet.

The Count

(source)

One… He wears a cape. Two… Glee’s Kurt Hummel is one of the people who inspire him on his Facebook profile and Three… he’s totes jealous of the vampires who can sparkle.

 

Janice

(source)

More Portia de Rossi than Rosie O’Donnell… I can definitely see Janice embracing the gay one day! And hopefully one day she’ll stop embracing the lip injections.

 

Cookie Monster

(source)

There are only two situations that explain this photo. Ernie was tricking Cookie Monster using his amateur chiropractor skills or Ernie’s a dirty ol' DAWG! U mad, Bert?

 

Statler And Waldorf

(source)

These guys are the kings, or should I say queens, of the verbal bitch-slap. And is there anyone better at the snappy put-down than a gay man? Besides, these dogs seem like they totally know what they’re talking about.

(source)

So just to be clear we totally support Muppets, ALL Muppets, regardless of their sexual orientation.
