Boobquake

Maybe boobs do cause earthquakes?

Organizer Jennifer McCreight called it Boobquake. In response to a comment by Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, who was quoted as saying, “Many women who do not dress modestly… lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity, and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes.”

McCreight decided to put the cleric’s theory to the test. McCreight said that when she posted the idea on Facebook she did it as a spoof. But the response was overwhelming. As of Monday, more than 80,000 have signed up on McCreight’s Facebook site.

Yesterday, Monday April 26th was Boobquake and according to the Associated Press, a 6.5-magnitude “earthquake struck off the southeast coast of Taiwan on Monday, causing buildings to sway briefly but no casualties or damage. The temblor was felt at the site of a massive landslide in northern Taiwan but did not hamper rescue efforts.”

Who’s laughing now? Boobs? Clerics?
