FILE - In this Aug. 22, 2001 file photo, Muppets Bert, left, and Ernie, from the children's program 'Sesame Street,' are shown in New York. An online petition calling for the nuptials of Muppet flat-mates Bert and Ernie has sparked controversy. Chicago resident Lair Scott, who posted the petition, is seeking matrimony for the 'Sesame Street' chums as a way to make gay and lesbian kids who watch the show feel better about themselves, and to promote tolerance for people who are different. Sesame Workshop, which produces the long-running children's series, declared in a statement, 'They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.'
