Business in the front…no sign of a party in the back.

Last week Iran banned “Western” hairstyles including ponytails, long hair, “elaborate spikes,” and everyone’s favorite “decadent Western cut”: the mullet. Slate has thoughtfully provided us with a piece on the history of the mullet to mark this auspicious occasion. Looks like Westerners weren’t the only ones sporting the mullet.

The article also helpfully informs us of the cause of earthquakes: adultery. Or so says Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi.

“Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes”

Wow, I wonder what women in Chile and Haiti were wearing that was so bad that it caused earthquakes. Can’t help but wonder if something was lost in translation from Farsi…
