Muppet Sex Rumor: Ernie and Bert Just Ducky

Fitzgerald's site had actually been closed several months before Sept. 11, after lawyers for the Children's Television Workshop threatened to sue him. However, the twisted pictures of Bert are still floating around the Internet.

"I still think I had the right to do what I did. It was all in fun, just parody," he said. "But I'm just one guy and I can't take on a multi-million-dollar corporation."

Fitzgerald says he's not surprised that the Children's Television Workshop is after a filmmaker who wants to take on Ernie and Bert's sexuality. But he thinks the Muppet should be free to choose his own lifestyle.

"There's no doubt Bert had a role in JFK's assassination," Fitzgerald said. "But I don't think Bert did it because he's gay. He had deeper, darker motivations and the folks at Sesame Street can't keep this conspiracy covered up forever."
