Ch-ch-check out the AH-mazing, adorable, and uplifting illustration by artist Jack Hunter of one of our favorite Muppet couples, Bert and Ernie, celebrating the recent historic Supreme Court decision on gay marriage! (above)

The cover, aptly named Moment of Joy, is set to come out for next week's edition of The New Yorker. Hunter had originally submitted it unsolicited to a Tumblr, and we're so glad it got selected, as it perfectly embodies the joy, pride, and relief of this moment!

Congrats to couples everywhere celebrating the good news of the past week, including you, Bert and Ernie! We'd love to see Rubber Duckie be the Best Man at your (hopefully soon to be) wedding (aka what should be plot of the next Muppet movie)!
