“BoobQuake!” Help determine if immodest dress causes earthquakes

Following an Iranian cleric’s pronouncement that scantily-dressed women are the proximate cause of earthquakes, a blogger has launched a scientific experiment. Men everywhere are eagerly awaiting the Phase I trial.

Last week, we reported on Iranian Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi, who told his Tehran congregation that:

Calamities are the result of people’s deeds . . . Many women who dress inappropriately … cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes.

In this statement, Sedighi implied that the cause of earthquakes is not, as wildly tweeted by the quantum psychic himself, Deepak Chopra.

Blag Hag has decided to put Sedighi’s theory to the test:

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.

Called “BoobQuake”, Blag Hag’s event calls for women to dress immodestly (but within bounds), in shirts revealing cleavage or in short shorts, in an attempt to bring down the wrath of Allah and cause an earthquake.

I do note that BH stops short of recommending extramarital sex or seducing young men . . . Perhaps that will be Sedhigi’s excuse for lack of shakeage? Or will he simply look to USGS charts and show that yes, somewhere in the world, a plate twitched imperceptibly?

If you will be BoobQuaking, keep up with Blag Hag and other BoobQuakers on Twitter at #boobquake, or join the event’s Facebook page HERE.
