Real Life Bert and Ernie Will Give You Nightmares

Bert and Ernie Real Life

Redditor ProbableCause spotted the pair at this year’s DragonCon and for some reason was compelled to share it with the rest of the world, a world that can only wonder, “Why? Why did you do that to us, bro?” See another photo below, if you dare.

The grisly photo suggests what the Sesame Street duo would look like had they been aging in real time. Is it us, or does Ernie kind of look like Mickey Rourke in ‘The Wrestler’?

When we saw the Gandalfs and Supermans and Weeping Angels, we kind of wished we had gone to DragonCon this year, but now we are so very, very glad we did not. At least there’s that to be thankful for. Doesn’t really make up for the ruined childhood, but still, it is some consolation.
