The same day that women showed off their cleavage to disprove an Islamic cleric’s claim that such displays cause seismic activity, there was, in fact, a 6.5-magnitude earthquake in Taiwan.
“Maybe I shouldn’t wear a low-cut shirt ever again,” said Annie Marter, 33, in Manhattan. “I feel really bad.”
Though the Taiwan quake resulted in no injuries and minimal damage, Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi may feel vindicated by the result.
“Many women who do not dress modestly . . . lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes,” he said last week.
Jennifer McCreight, a graduate student in Indiana, then came up with the idea of a national day, dubbed Boobquake, to protest the remark.
She said yesterday she’s not convinced that all of the extra partially exposed breasts were to blame for the shakeup on the other side of the globe.
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.”
