This just in: boobs cause natural disasters.
Such was the impression a senior Iranian cleric gave earlier this week when he charged that women who wear immodest clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes.
A student from Purdue University has voiced her outrage at the man’s theory, and is taking action in the breast (er…rather, best) way she knows how. The NY Post reports:
Senior Jennifer McCreight is staging “Boobquake” on Monday, asking women of the world to give an eyeful to Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi. She’s recruiting tens of thousands of women to don “immodest” clothes next week, even at the risk of a rumble. “What we want is for women to wear something that’s a little more immodest than what they’d normally wear, maybe shorts or a low-cut shirt,” McCreight told The Post yesterday.
So come Monday, prepare yourself to see some skin. And, if Sedighi’s words have any merit, scientists will be able to add breasts to the list of catalysts for earthquakes, which currently includes volcanic activity, landslides, mine blasts, and nuclear experiments.
