"The volcano DEFINITELY erupted because Iceland's prime minister is a lesbian." --a joke circulating on Tweet.
"Many women who do not dress modestly... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes." --Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, acting Friday prayer leader in Tehran, Iraq, speaking in a prayer sermon on April 16. (Thanks to my daughter Marie for alerting me to this one.)
In response to passage of the US health care bill: "I think the earth has opened up. God may have replied." --Rush Limbaugh. (Thanks to Juanita Wright Potter.)
Rush, don't you think Mt. Shasta or Mt. Rainier would have been a better choice of volcano if God were speaking to the US?
Hojatoleslam, you mean the volcano is shouting with Helen Reddy, "I am woman--hear me roar" ?
Anonymous Tweeter, I'm with you. That volcanic crater may be speaking a kind of vagina monologue.
In medieval times there was a gynophobic legend of the devouring vagina, lined with teeth. I guess certain men today are still afraid of woman power.
