"The event has been dubbed "Boobquake" and is the brainchild of Purdue University student Jennifer McCreight. She's asking women around the world to show a little cleavage today, as a humorous test to disprove an Iranian cleric who said immodestly dressed women were responsible for recent earthquakes.

"At first, it started off a joke," McCreight told CTV's Canada AM via Skype from West Lafayette, Indiana.

"When I read what this cleric had said, I thought that it was pretty ridiculous and we could actually test it scientifically. So I suggested that we go ahead and do that. And I never thought it would take off like this."

The comments that incensed McCreight came from a prominent Iranian cleric.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," said Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader."

So....did anyone participate, or watch their house fall into the abyss?

My Grove's Beltainne was the evening before, so I participated a little early ;) (No, no skyclad, just blouse cut all the way down to There and my hair down and uncovered and decked with black feathers :D )

Yesterday I failed a bit. T-shirt and sports bra :-( But my hair was down and uncovered!

I didn't cause an earthquake. I'm insulted! Surely I'm at LEAST a 2.0 on the Richter Scale! ;)
