Would Christina Hendricks allow herself to be part of Boobquake?
As the country prepares for a major Boobquake on Monday morning, it will be interesting to see which celebrities join the cause and contribute to the Boobquake. Given that the Boobquake effort is being driven to a large degree on Facebook, the one celebrity that should really join the cause will likely not do so.
Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame was recently named the sexiest woman alive by Esquire Magazine in its most recent issue. In it, Hendricks said she ‘cannot stand Facebook’.
For those who haven’t been online until now in the past day or two, Boobquake is an event that will hit the country, and many parts of the world, hard on Monday, April 26. It seems a relatively obscure blogger, an undergraduate student at Purdue University named Jennifer McCreigh, pointed out the comments made by Iranian cleric that said scantily clad women were ultimately responsible for causing earthquakes.
McCreigh wrote about it the cleric’s remarks in a blog post entitled, “In the name of science, I offer my boobs”, said that on April 26, she would wear revealing clothing to prove that in fact women dressing skimpily did not cause earthquakes. She encouraged her readers to the do the same and even created a Facebook group for those who wanted to join the cause and show a little boob. Or a big boob. McCreigh called the event ‘Boobquake’, and thought the post was mostly a joke and that perhaps a few of her readers would see it and join in the fun.
However, over the past six days, Boobquake has taken off around the globes. Er, globe. It has attracted over 160,000 women as of early Saturday evening and promises to keep growing to a bigger, well, size.
The only thing that Boobquake seems to be lacking is a celebrity. While its grassroots appeal is among its delectable charms, the reality is that it’s now ready to become even bigger. A celebrity would help that cause.
And what celebrity would be better to help the Boobquake cause than Christina Hendricks? The ravishing red headed woman who is Esquire’s sexiest woman alive would be the perfect addition to the Boobquake cause.
But, alas, since Christina doesn’t like Facebook, she is unlikely to see the group and the cause and lend her support.
That said, Christina Hendricks does have a sizeable Facebook page. Perhaps one of her many fans will tell her about the Boobquake and get Mad Men’s sex symbol onboard?
