It's rare to have advance warning of a natural disaster, but that's the situation we find ourselves in regarding the impending Boobquake that's set to hit the world on Monday. In response to a Muslim imam who claims that cleavage-bearing women cause earthquakes, the blog Blag Hag has proposed a Boobquake on Monday to test his theory. Here's the call to arms:
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.
More than 132,000 people have RSVPed to Monday's Facebook event and the Post easily found a half-dozen women who are psyched to participate by showing off their goods. In an unrelated note, Monday is also "Take Pictures of Random Women on Your Cell Phone" day.
