Oh Good God...

Remember the old Bloom County cartoon series about Penguin Lust? Well...

The Chicago Tribune reports that a non-fiction children's book about two penguins at New York City's Central Park Zoo who adopted an abandoned egg in the late 1990s has been pulled from the shelves at the Rolling Hills' Consolidated Library's branches in Savannah and St. Joseph, Missouri.

The problem? The penguin's names were Roy and Silo -yes (GASP!!) they were BOTH MALE!!!

Obviously the book was a crafty part of the Homosexual Agenda, or at least that's what two parents and Rolling Hills director Barbara Read thought. Read said that she was removing the book so that it would not "blindside" readers.

I was going to write something else about this, but maybe not...there aren't enough words for "stupid" in the English language to even begin to do it justice.

Kinda reminds me of the song

"I'm chilly willy the penguin, ha he ah-choo!"

Of course now that memory is completely ruined for me, I never thought HE was gay, but then if he's hanging around with polarbears well! I never!
