"This Modern World" Characters

Sparky the Wonder Penguin
...Sparky can actually talk. Similar to Dippy, Spark's first words in the strip are "George [H. W.] Bush is a wanker". A strong liberal advocate, he briefly became a Republican after being hit on the head with a random falling toilet.

Sparky wears a version of Inuit snow goggles to avoid Dumbo male bovine excrement blindness. How much dumber can we get? If this is a (fair & balanced) bottonless pit o'stupidity, so be it.
