I love Ernie and Bert!!!

Ok, I normally don't devote a whole post to these silly quizzes, but...

I was obsessively reading my blog stats as usual, and discovered a fabulous new blog linking to me here, with a bunch of amusing stuff in the sidebar including a cute quiz result about a beloved childhood gay icon: Velma, from Scooby-Doo.

So I had to take the quiz myself, and even though I honestly answered the question about losing my glasses all the time (seriously, it's ridiculous, and I can't see a thing without my glasses!!!) I didn't get Velma. Here's what I got:

You Are the Very Gay Bert and Ernie!

Two grown puppets living together, sleeping in the same room?
They've even got coordinating striped shirts!


So cute -- I love watching their song about the boogie-woogie sheep with my kids. :D

Plus, I really am wearing a striped shirt right now!!! I thought that question was going to land me on Mo (from DTWOF, another fave of mine!), but of course she's not a childhood icon...

I'm the Very Gay Peppermint Patty. I don't know how I got that result... must have been the t-shirt, sandals and shorts question, 'cause I suck at softball.

Hey Kristi!!!

I think I was about two inches from getting Peppermint Patty myself since I really hesitated on that t-shirt and shorts question. But the striped shirt was really more accurate ;^). Peppermit Patty is cool though. :D

Didn't Sesame Street officially out Ernie and Bert as gay a couple years ago? I seem to remember a minor news flurry about that.

I'm a very gay Peppermint Patty as well. Many of my friends tease me that I'm a very rare lesbian trapped in a fag's body. I don't know where they get that idea. Is it that I spit on the sidewalk? Pick my teeth? Judge people by their politics? Own shares in U-Haul? I dunno. Amazing what accuracy you get from a 5-question quizzaroo. lol

haha! Bert and Ernie, I love it! I didn't even know that was an option and am slightly jealous that I didn't get them as my answer.

Great blog, by the way. :-)

Peppermint Patty. And it really fits me LOL Just call me sir although I really hate playing softball.

C. L. Hanson said...

Hey Seth R.!!!

I'm not sure. Actually I thought they had Bert die or something, which is kind of sad...

Hey Todd!!!

True, it came up with some pretty insightful results in just five questions... ;^)

Thanks Jane!!!

I like your blog too -- I've added you to my "miscellaneous" category. :D

Hey Cynthia!!! (Or Patty ;^) )

I got Bert and Ernie too. I love the guys from my childhood, but I frankly can't see how my answers would lead to me being them.

Of course I wanted a partner who was brainy and busty ;-)

C. L. Hanson said...

Hey King Aardvark!!!

Haha, look down and see if you aren't perhaps wearing a striped shirt, like me... ;^)

I am a very gay Velma? hmmmm

C. L. Hanson said...

Hey Beat Dad!!!

Do you lose your glasses a lot? ;^)

King Aardvark said...

When I did the test I was not wearing a striped shirt, so I still have no idea why I was Ernie and Bert. However, the results may still be accurate because I appear to be wearing a striped shirt today. Hmmm, this test was prescient. Spooky.

eerie... ;^)
