    I’ll bet that, like Ted Haggard, Oral Bill turns out to be a penguin luster himself. Not only that, but who the hell is a guy called ORAL Bill to be casting aspersions on anyone?

    PENGUIN LUST! For heaven’s sake, don’t tell anyone!

    My favorite T-shirt. Although, unfortunately, it is quite worn and faded now.

    @Pigman I’m guessing its a reference to this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_Roberts

    And it probably pre-dates the Bill Clinton – Monica – Oral incident. :D

    Yes, it’s based on Oral Roberts, the guy who turned God into a kidnapper and a terrorist!
    He locked himself into a tower on his “University”, and claimed that if he didn’t get a certain amount of money “Donated” to his “Ministry” by a certain time, God was going to kill him!
    Sure sounds like he claimed God was a kidnapper, holding him hostage!
    Sadly, enough brain-dead suckers sent in the money, so we didn’t get a chance to see him weasel his way out of it if the money hadn’t come in!

    It’s not a coincidence…you can’t spell immoral without oral!

    Is that the lust OF penguins, or lust FOR penguins?

    “Brain-dead” is certainly true. God wouldn’t kidnap anybody. If this was a way for people to lose unneccesary possessions, it is one the DEVIL would have chosen!

    Hey Oral Bill, before you point your righteous paw at anyone, could you just explain how an immoral society can have the “moral fiber” you say is being threatened by penguin lust? Just asking…

    He must have read the George Murray Levick report about “depraved” penguins: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-18370797 . . . that penguin lust knows no bounds!

    One of my favorite strips by Berk. Takes me back to college, when I indeed had Opus lust. Luckily, I found my hubby, who doesn’t have a big nose, nor is he slightly overweight, but he is generally flightless and does love water.

    As I recall the full amount didn’t come in but God let him off the hook ’cause it was a good effort…

    A band called Annwn recorded a hoot of a song called “Penguin Lust” back in the 90s. Links to lyrics and mp3 are here (scroll down): http://motogrrl.org/Bands/annwn/lovers.html
