US student Jennifer McCreight has launched a "Boobquake" campaign on Facebook-asking thousands of women to show maximum cleavage and shake the world. This campaign has been started in a 'busty' bid to challenge an Islamic cleric's suggestion that immodestly dressed women cause earthquakes.
Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi angered womens' groups around the world on Monday when he claimed that promiscuous women were responsible for literally making the earth move.
Advertisement"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," the Courier Mail quoted Sedighi as saying.
Jennifer McCreight is determined to prove him wrong.
Since launching the "Boobquake" Facebook page, she has enlisted more than 20,000 women promising to show as much cleavage as possible on Monday, April 26.
And if the world doesn't then collapse, then Sedighi will have to admit he was wrong.
"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," wrote McCreight.
"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," she added.
