Default Iranian Cleric Proved Correct

At least 40,000 woman around the world dressed down today to expose more skin today as part of Boob Quake Day. Boob Quake Day was organized by Perdue University student Jan McCreight in response to the following statement made by an Iranian cleric at Friday prayers in Tehran:

"Many women who do not dress modestly . . . lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which [consequently] increases earthquakes," Mr. Sedighi told Iranian media on April 16.

Ms. McCreight's "Boob Quake Day" is meant to test the cleric's theory to see if the thousands of women all dressing promiscuously causes the Earth to move.

And, sure enough, there was a 6.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Taiwan today.

It may be that the Iranian cleric is on to something. Betcha all the women in Taiwan are gonna take note and cover up from now on.

Also, people should take note that the Iranian Cleric didn't say anything about streaking causing earthquakes.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Sedighi, who apparently counts seismology among his hobbies, told Iranian media on April 16.



I managed to do that just fine on my own. Earthquakes were not part of the equation.

I guess it depends on their definition of the earth moving

So, I'm sitting here wondering if Friday prayers in Tehran have ever been streaked.

What would the Supreme Islamic Council think of some infidel running butt naked through a mosque just for the he11 of it... without any immodestly dressed women around to have led him astray, corrupted his chastity and put that crazy idea in his head.

I think it would cause a stir, God willing.

Hey, the computer wouldn't let me use the word m,o,s,q,u,e. It replace that word with mosque.
Since when is m,o,s,q,u,e a four letter word? Lemme try again...

mosque

Hey, TxBuilder: Obviously the Department of Homeland Security is watching us real close to make sure we're not planning to blow up something in here. Let's let them know that they can trust us, and that we've already taken precautions to ensure that our thoughts aren't be corrupted by foreign or alien influences or immodestly dressed women:

Nestor, are you volunteering? and why are you wearing your Sunday morning tinfoil. You know you have to save the good stuff for special occasions.

A patent examiner at the USPTO wore tinfoil under her clothes. "Prevents evil thoughts", she said.

Another had velvet ropes around his desk, like you see in a bank. "Keeps away evil spirits", he said.

A third had the equations for time travel. When asked to show them, he said, "Can't. Might fall into the wrong hands."
