Sesame newsletter

This is just a joke. But I wanted to park it here in case it comes up. Every Sesame Family Newsletter ends with a trivia note at the bottom. The one sent out on December 17, 2008 included the following:

True or false?

Ernie and Bert were named for the police officer and the taxicab driver in It's a Wonderful Life.

Answer: False. Sesame writers insist it's just a coincidence. Of course, we don't have to believe them.

Again, it's a joke. And possibly an attribution to the power of the meme. [1]Scott (talk) 23:19, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

And the same trivia question and response appear in Sesame Street Unpaved. --Minor muppetz 00:31, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Just in case the "Burt" spelling comes up again. — Scott (talk) 19:09, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
