The deliciously irreverent Jen McCreight from Blag Hag has recently come up with an awesome response to Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi's claims of:
"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes."Sedighi is Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader.
This little bit of supernatural thinking has been floating around the blogosphere today:
"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media. Sedighi is Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader.I have a modest proposal.
Sedighi claims that not dressing modestly causes earthquakes. If so, we should be able to test this claim scientifically. You all remember the homeopathy overdose?
Time for a Boobquake.
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. And if we really get through to him, maybe it'll be one involving plate tectonics.
So, who's with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own. If you'll be joining me on twitter, use the tag #boobquake! Or join the facebook even
And, given that it's a public hol, here in OZ, there are no excuses of "but I can't do that at work".
Get the girls out in the name of rational thinking!!
Join the Double D train to enlightenment!
Let the puppies run free for free-thinking!
My girls, known throughout the land as "Anapurna I" and "Anapurna II" will be doing their bit this Monday. So you might want to avoid the Mornington Peninsula, just incase ol' Sedighi's right!!
