The wonderful Boobquake experiment officially started today, and it looks like it has already garnered one result. Earlier this morning, a major earthquake shook Taiwan and the Philippines, as thousands of woman around the world bared their cleavage to test one Islamic cleric’s theory that scantily clad women cause earthquakes. Coincidence? Or proof of the supernatural power of cleavage?
Fortunately, no damage or casualties have yet been reported in the 6.9 magnitude quake that struck off the southeast coast of Taiwan, but the news might have some Boobquakers reaching for a shawl. One of the event’s supporters on Facebook wrote, “I’m starting to think I should go cover up.”
Boobquake was created by American blogger Jen McCreight to satirize the claim made by Islamic cleric and, apparently, amateur scientist Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi that immodest female clothing is to blame for earthquakes.
