Oil leaking from exhaust pipe

This morning i started my truck up before i left for school and let it run for about 5 minutes to warm up. When i was walking to my truck i noticed a little dark spot where the tailpipe was dripping. I assumed it was water but it kind of looked like oil so i touched it....

It was oil.

Please tell me this is just something stupid and not my head gaskets. The truck is running fine. I havent checked the oil or antifreeze yet since i had to go directly to school. My inspection is on friday and im hoping that I will be able to pass.

Any ideas?

Are your sure it is not just water mixed with carbon from the exhaust system? The condensation from it being cold will cause water to form in the exhaust until the pipe gets hot. I don't think oil would get that far down the pipe without burning up first.

ditto the above....oil is so darn viscous I very seriously doubt it'd even reach the cat before burning up. The EGTs on this engine are pretty darn high...1500*F at the exhaust ports at WOT, (as per monstermaxx's 6 channel EGT gauges.)
