At the New Yorker site, artist Jack Hunter offers a short explanation of the artwork above. Not that it needs any, and that’s the brilliance behind it: Endless hours of TV coverage have taken apart this week’s gay marriage rulings by the Supreme Court. Hundreds of thousands of words of analysis have poured forth on the topic. Now art has its say.

Are Bert and Ernie really gay? Do they have an upcoming op-Ed in the New Yorker? Unfortunately puppets still can’t get married #bigotry
