Happy Śmigus Dyngus, Armitage Admirers

I’m not really one for Easter, but I couldn’t let this Easter Monday pass without taking the opportunity to post…well, we’ll get to that…

Śmigus Dyngus (pronounced SHMEE-gooss DIN-gooss), which is sometimes described as Wet Monday, is a Polish tradition of pouring water as a symbol of cleansing, purification, and fertility.


In the past boys would pour perfumed water on the girls, but nowadays it mostly consists of you walking down the road to visit family dressed in your best get-up and some teenage w*nker pouring a bucket of cold water on you or a family member p*ssing you off first thing in the morning with their made-in-china water gun.

Anyway, far be it for me to tamper with tradition, so let’s celebrate Wet Monday the best way I know how: with a round of Wet Armitage!

Ladies, buckets at the ready and douse at will!

(don’t worry, I hear he doesn’t mind getting a bit wet…)

  1. LOL, wet Monday. Nice idea. For all the wrong reasons.

  2. Chucking it down here so lots of water on hand. Now all I need is RA 😉

  3. Water as a symbol for purity and cleansing I get. But fertility? A glass of Pinot would do a better job IMHO. But wet RA has about the same effect. 😉

    • Regarding fertility, I was going to go down the: “depends what you do in a hot tub” route, but I’m going to keep it classy and focus on the Armitage wet T-shirt competition 😉

  4. Another excuse to see wet RA on other days apart from the tRAditional Wet Wednesdays. But then again, you don’t need an occasion to specifically see wet RA 😉

  5. Hmm z mokrym Rysiem Śmigus Dyngus wygląda znacznie lepiej 😉 Dzięki Agzy 🙂

  6. What a wonderful way to start the day !! Thank you!! 😉

  7. He’s not the only one getting wet.

  8. Love! Why am I only hearing about this now?
