Sesame Street's Ernie Gets a Colonoscopy, Makes Gay Joke on Conan


In honor of the 45th anniversary of Sesame Street this year, Ernie got a colonoscopy live on Conan. Natch, because he’s old and needs to take care of his puppet parts. What a piece of in-depth reporting.

Despite feeling drowsy, Ernie keeps his sense of humor during the procedure: “Is it too late to sign up for Obamacare?” He also makes a joke about his alleged life partner, Bert, saying, “Bert, is that you back there?” Ha. Ha.

Valid point.
