Please pardon me while we take a break from our regularly-scheduled program for this PSA: Inspired by this petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/let-bert-ernie-get-married-on-sesame-street I was led to aforementioned petition by: http://jezebel.com/5829574/the-misguided-movement-to-have-bert-and-ernie-get-married-on-sesame-street This shit makes me genuinely angry.

Wicker Park, outside 6 Corners, inside my car, in the driver’s seat. (Prepositions. I like them.) The wholly enjoyable book? Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams. [...]
