TMZ caught up with Kermit the Frog outside of a marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles to ask him about the rumors about Bert and Ernie. "They're not gay," says the green muppet. "How are you supposed to be gay if you don't have a penis?"

OMG, what a cowardly thing to do -- dress up like Kermit the Frog just so no one will see you buying pot.

I guess the costume store was all sold out of rubber chicken outfits.

But I do think we should drop this silly "Bert and Ernie are lovers" notion.

[ Old, old joke: "No hanky-panky going on? Yeah, right, it's just a total coincidence that Kermit's middle finger smells exactly like Miss Piggy ..."]

[ Brand new joke:

Older brother in back seat to sister: "No! Stop that! The cap isn't supposed to come off!"

Mother driving car: "Mary, stop playing with that expensive fountain pen that I bought for your brother's composition class!"

Sister: "I wasn't, Mom ... I was playing with his penis." ]

Being a big muppet fan, this was badly done, poor costume and I don't think kermy would be so foul mouthed.
