The Slavic goings-on remind me of the Feast of Lupercal. Fertility is all.

fertility is all and must be achieved at all costs - even if the women are to be whipped into it.

but i'm glad Slappy found a tradition he can enjoy. Maybe he can put together a vicious group to go around Boston...but authorities may not be as understanding as the Slovak ones are.

Forget the authorities. This is America, where you sue the hell out the organizers and GET RICH QUICK on the punitive damages!

(Now I'm curious if this passes the spam filter.)

another utterance from last night --
    the thing about rugby is, sometimes the knees go the wrong way...


Rugby...someone at that gathering has even heard of rugby????? Whu, f'gudness'sake?

The knees, yes! Confused

And if username can drive on the "wrong" side of the road, does that mean he comes from somewhere they do drive on that side, and ergo, knows of rugby???

no no no, margo. we were talking about men's behinds...hence about my favorite subject- the american football uniforms, and from there we somehow got to rugby.... some claimed that rugby men are realer men than american football men.... i don't care so much, i just like the american football spandex pants :wink:

Joe Namath used to wear panty hose under his spandex. Said it kept him warm on a cold day Rolling Eyes

Come thank of it Steve Young looked real good at Waikaloa Hilton pool. Probably hasn 't gained a ounce since he retired.

the best bums are on men who play AFL - Australian football! It's a real running game, but they need height, too...and they wear tight shorts (or some do) - so they are usually tall, with great legs and bums. I believe there's a ball involved somewhere, but it doesn't interfere with your game! Razz

Are you feeling better today, Dag? It's certainly nice to see your appetite is back.

It's all about running and kicking - not stop - start, as in
american football. Gives them very tight little buns!

Oh!

Put me down for that train trip, as described by Thomas.

Sounds very pleasant. I love trains!

So I was telling these guys about the Slovak Easter.

On Easter Monday, hordes of young men gang up and go house to house to visit young maidens. They don't go empty-handed, no. They wield willow plaited whips and buckets of water and perfume. When they descend upon a house, they drag the girls out, pour buckets of water over them, stink them up with cheap perfume and whip them blue. Heaps of fun........for men. In return, they get all sorts of food, liquor, even money, each girl ties a ribbon on their plait (the whip) and gives each man a decorated easter egg (with wax, dyes, copper wire, wool...etc., ).

Here's a little demonstration, though these guys are light on whips:

Just found the thread.

Thanks for the posts, pics, etc.!

While I can understand the pre-industrial roots of this (I can imagine what things would be like after a winter of no indoor plumbing and no water heater), I, like Slappy, am amazed that the ladies continue to allow it. The guys in the video got a bit... enthusiastic... with the buckets of water.

Wasn't willow used to scrub off after a good sauna?
