The Conch Telegraph reported that Bert and Ernie were recently seen on an airplane headed to Key West. Various tourists captured photos of the famous pair and posted them to Instagram. Gossip travels fast in Key West. And if you are celebrities like Bert and Ernie, it travels even faster.
Bert was spotted sipping cocktails on the plane ride down to Key West. After the plane landed Bert sped over to the Bourbon Street Pub for happy hour. He left Ernie at the airport waiting for their bags to arrive on a later flight. Thank you very much American Airlines!
Captain Tony's was a very bad choice. Bert woke up the next morning and found himself mounting a Hemingway Cat that looks like Adolph Hitler reincarnated! Once he sobered up Bert once again set out to find Ernie.
Bert went over to Simonton Street hoping Ernie might be at their favorite old deli only to find the place was closed and Ernie was nowhere to be found.
Bert then headed to seaport. B.O.'s Fish Wagon was another favorite hangout. No Ernie there either. He wandered around Old Town for hours. Eventually he and made his way up to the Key West Cemetery.
When Bert arrived at the trailer court not only was Ernie not there, the trailer court was not there either. It was as if their life together had been erased. It seemed to Bert that he was living in the Twilight Zone or something.
Bert and Ernie made their way to Ft Zach Taylor Beach - their favorite place in the world - waiting for sunset. Key West is the place they where they plan to spend their retirement - together.
