You can sell anything with tits. So the almost supernatural spread of the Boobquake “movement” should come as no surprise. Even news groups like CNN acknowledge the drawing power of breasts. On a slow news day you can never go wrong with a story about tits. They put asses in the seats.
I’ve built a large portion of my audience on the strength of Carol’s breasts. Her ability to dominate adspace is impressive. As beautiful as Nina and Jolene are they don’t capture half the people Carol can by unbuttoning her top. The males aren’t worth even making ads with.
I make no apologies for using her sex appeal to get attention. I’ve more than proven that the story is deeper than Carol’s cleavage. That said, she’s certainly shown that she revels in the gifts God gave her. It’s safe to say that the boobquake is something she’d get behind. Of course, so would the other girls. Even Jo, in her own timid way, would enjoy making a stand by embracing the joy of immodesty.
If you have to ask why something like the boobquake went viral, you are an idiot, and should be struck about the head and neck with a tack hammer. Humanity is obsessed with breasts. Especially the ones who pretend not to be. It’s something programmed deeply in our DNA. We aren’t called mammals for no reason. Unfortunately I don’t live someplace where people are likely to care one way or the other about making a statement with cleavage. T^T I doubt there’ll even be the slightest of tremors where I am. Pity me.
Humor is an incredible weapon. The South Park/Muhammad controversy is illustration enough of that. People fear being mocked. Especially ones whose power comes from the ability to control thought. Once you let satire loose it’s very hard to stop. As ridiculous as boobquake is, somehow it still manages to point out the foolishness of the statement that caused it.
Also, I don’t expect anyone will notice unless I point towards it a bit, but can you spot the Pokemon reference embedded in the comic?
