encourage earthquakes whilst on live TV. First Jacinda Ardern and now Katrín Jakobsdóttir. Just what are these women creating here? Which country is next?

I think it's a reference to an Iranian minister who blamed an earthquake on women showing cleavages and was known as boobquake. It's a rather dated reference though so who knows...

Should they be blonde? Redheaded? Encourage cyclones? Be deputy PM? Be male?

I'm lost grin

I live in Denmark but given the lack of tectonic boundaries here I'd be very impressed if Mette Frederiksen managed to conjure an earthquake up.

If she does you're definitely on to something!

They are powerful women but they don't control earthquakes. WTF are you on?

JaJaDingDong Wed 21-Oct-20 11:26:52

I should have thought it was a pretty bad idea for ginger male prime ministers, or just about any one else, to encourage earthquakes too.

What are you talking about? confused

What on earth are you talking about? “Encouraging earthquakes”? confused

elQuintoConyo Wed 21-Oct-20 11:27:09

FFS could you tell us what you're on about rather than just linking something?

Hazelnutlatteplease Wed 21-Oct-20 11:27:13

I dont think you can encourage an earthquake.... they just happen confused

YABU for talking utter nonsense.

Both Prime Ministers have been live on air in the last half a year when an earthquake struck mid way through.

The OP is putting a lighthearted spin on the coincidence of this.

Why have you thrown brunette into the mix?

AFlockOfKnots Wed 21-Oct-20 11:30:50

Literally, not metaphorically. Here's another:

I think you are getting correlation and causation mixed up here, OP.

I clicked the second link. Still haven’t got the foggiest what the frig you’re on about.

...I think this was a joke but everybody carry on getting outraged over nothing.

whatswithtodaytoday Wed 21-Oct-20 11:34:35

Oooh. I'm a brunette, if I became Prime Minister would I have the power to summon earthquakes?

Also, wtf?

Have you been drinking?

No outrage, just confusion.

Well, clearly it's not serious but it makes zero sense.
