A couple of days ago an Iranian cleric let the world know that women with their boobs out cause earthquakes, this in itself almost causing an earthquake because of all the jaws simultaneously dropping to the floor. One lady has taken it upon herself to debunk, or perhaps prove, the cleric's claims by organising a worldwide cleavage-fest on Monday, 26 April.
The direct quote from Tehran's prayer leader celebrity Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, was: "Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which consequently increase earthquakes."
The group admin, Jennifer McCreight, replies by saying: "On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that's your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I'm sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn't rumble."
The group has 9,794 confirmed guests at time of publishing. We support 'Boobquake' here at TechEye. In the name of science, of course. You can check out Jennifer's blog post here.
We chatted to Jennifer, who added: "I would just like to add that I'm not trying to force women to go out of their comfort zones. We're just coordinating our most immodest outfit that we already wear for the same day. And it's not limited to cleavage power - I'm sure an ankle will be sufficiently immodest to make some god cranky."
