Unhappy Oil in the Intake?

i was taking off my throttle body to see if i could get to the EGR valve, when oil started drippin out of the intake elbow. I really hope my motor isnt junk, and if it makes any difference i did change my oil and filter today. Maybe its my PCV valve?

If you pour oil in very fast it sometimes gets in through the vent.

What I always do before I pour oil in a car is pull out the dipstick so air can escape as I'm filling the oil.

I've come into this world with nothing and still manage to have some of it left.
