Malaysia: Tourists naked photo shoot causes major earthquake

The photo shoot occurred May 10, but the images didn’t circulate on social media until last Saturday

Locals who believe in the supernatural have blamed a group of cheeky tourists for an earthquake that has left more than 100 climbers stranded atop Southeast Asia’s highest peak.

The holidaymakers posed for a series of nude photographs and were accused of urinating as they scaled Mount Kinabalu in the Malaysian state of Sabah.

According to Malaysian media, there are some locals who believe the 6.0-magnitude tremor was caused by ‘mountain spirits’ who were angered over the crude photo shoot which occurred high above the clouds…

    Gee, maybe just maybe they are on to something. I have heard of some describing the feeling of an orgasm akin to feeling like the earth moved…..

    • They offended the sacred mountain!

    • Frau Katze

      Quite literally!

    Muslims clerics are not known for being very bright.

    • Frances

      Doesn’t sound as if it were imams who were complaining. The locals could be referencing a far older belief than Islam.

  • Dana Garcia

    Hmm, I would think the Mountain Spirits would appreciate climbers going au naturel. Also, it’s likely that locals piss on the mountain.

    The most interesting part is that they were Canadian!!! Who knew?

    However, what I’d really like to know how the tight jeans theory works with this –is it tight jeans or naked Canadians?

    “…were accused of urinating as they scaled Mount Kinabalu…”

    They forgot the second most important rule of mountain climbing in Malaysia

    The first being not to spook the suspicious natives by running around naked in Malaysia, ….unless you are NOT a tourist, in which case it’s OK.

    Clearly they are mooning the mountain spirits.

    In support of their native brothers there, Canadian indians are blaming white people for the introduction of forest fires to Canada. They are asking for one billion dollars in compensation and an apology.

    I think that the tourists were stupid.
    They were in a funny country, and the mountain is sacred to the locals.
    I call their action looking for trouble.

    Wynne, Atwood, Hall… that would certainly cause an earthquake. Maybe even the end of life as we know it.
