Iranian Cleric Passes Up Perfect Opportunity To End Bit With "… In My Pants!"

This Carole King reference will be completely lost on young peopleHojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, acting leader of Friday prayers in Tehran, is concerned about earthquakes-a not unreasonable fear in a country prone to seismic disturbances. But what is the cause of these natural disasters? If you guessed "hot chicks in tight clothes," you are either familiar with a certain strain of Koranic interpretation or you have seen this item elsewhere. Anyway, let's hear it from Hojatoleslam's mouth (or, at the very least, from a translation of the Iranian media transcription): "Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes." Okay!

I laughed so hard!

I don't think Joni Mitchell ever led anyone astray, not even David Crosby (that is a Joni Mitchell album cover, right?).

Carole King. She felt the earth…move…etc.

I'm gonna have that dumb fucking Carole King song stuck in my head all week. AND I'M NOT THAT OLD, SHUT UP.

Oh, shit, that's who I meant. But she never led anyone astry either, though she was led astray by Neil Sedaka music, as the lyrics of her song Oh, Neil! make clear:

Oh! Neil!
I've loved you for so long
I never dreamed you'd put me in a song

I'm Carol!
And I live in Tennessee
I never hoped that you'd remember me

Darling, when I saw you at the square dance
My pulse skipped a beat
My heart felt so heavy
Like I had too much to eat

Then you took me walking in the moonlight
It was, oh, so sublime
I had too much molasses
And your lips stuck to mine

Oh! Neil!
I'd even give up a month's supply of chewin' tabacky
Just to be known as Mrs. Neil Sedacky

My Grandpappy, he don't like your records
He said if I play them, I will surely die

Lookout! I see him comin' with his shotgun!
There's nothing left to do…
Oh! Neil! I'll surely die for you!

(Shotgun blast)
(Grandpappy) I told that gal not to play them dad-gum Neil Sedacky records!
