'Boobquake' Brings Out Cleavage Monday

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- If you're seeing women dressed a bit more revealingly Monday, it could be they're taking part in the "boobquake," and effort to oppose comments by an Iranian cleric, WRTV-TV in Indianapolis reported.

The station said it started with a Purdue University student's attempt to poke fun at an Iranian cleric's contention that promiscuity and immodesty is responsible for earthquakes. It mushroomed into a cause that went viral, taken on by thousands of women.

Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader, ignited controversy by linking tremors to the behavior of women.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Iranian media quoted Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi as saying.

Jen McCreight, a self-described "liberal, geeky, nerdy, scientific, perverted atheist feminist trapped in Indiana," and her cause, "Boobquake," is one of the top trending topics worldwide on Twitter and has amassed a Facebook following of about 50,000 people, with hundreds of thousands pledged to help the effort.

Short of g-strings and pasties how could college girls dress more revealingly? (I know, not all, but too many)

Some gals just need to hit the gym before posing like that.

If that’s your wife, I sincerely apologize!

Laugh if you want to, but what happens if the old Imam was right? What if there is a catastrophic earthquake? Will anyone notice?

I think she is pretty. She looks like a healthy weight. Not fat.

Pencil thin or anorexic looking.....no. Pretty....yes.

Overwhelming offers of support and volunteers lending a hand or two pour in from as far away as Boulder, Colorado, Grand Tetons, Wy., Twin Peaks, Wa. and Honkers, N.Y.

Hooters has offered work to those having the largest burden to shoulder and hope to uplift their sagging morale.

You posted a pic of a disgusting creature, so I retaliated with another disgusting creature — the Grackle.
Of course, this is all in fun and no ill intent. Cheers!

Actually...the bird didn’t strike me as disgusting but I’m unfamiliar with the grackle but if it’s like a cow bird..then I see.

But even so they look good compared to her LOL!
