(WABC-TV) — CARMEL — The duo voted “cutest couple” in the senior class at a suburban New York high school say they’re getting teased about it – but not because they’re both boys.

“Yeah, our friends are giving it to us about being Internet famous,” said 18-year-old Dylan Meehan, a senior at Carmel High School.

“We’ve never had any problems at all,” added 17-year-old senior Brad Taylor. “As a matter of fact, before the results, people were telling us ahead of time, ‘You guys are going to win hands down.’” The gay couple’s selection – a first at Carmel High – has become an online sensation, driven by a yearbook photo of the smiling boys in a close embrace. A friend’s blog with the photo had more than 110,000 hits Monday, and it was cited in stories on several major news sites.
