‘Shag an Archaeologist Day 2011’ is an online project to help convince the general public to have sex with an archaeologist on Saturday July 23rd 2011. This date coincides with the Festival of British Archaeology, which runs from 16th – 31st July 2011.
Archaeologists taking part in the project will document their shag through photographs, videos and written blog posts. These will then be collected on a special facebook page (Click here), which will provide a glimpse into the sex lives of people working in archaeology, from archaeological excavations to laboratories, universities, community archaeology groups, education services, museums and offices.
How it all began
‘Shag an Archaeologist Day 2011’ was born after two PhD students – Jimbo Jonkins and Earnest Stu – stumbled home from the TAG conference disco having failed to get laid for the third consecutive year.
‘That was me,’ piped up Stu, earnestly (right). ‘I’d just clicked on a bunch of really cool facebook event invites for things like ‘World Diggers Day’ and ‘A Day of Archaeology 2011’ and I suddenly realised – Jesus! If all it takes is a few thumbs up ‘Likes’ to raise archaeology’s woeful plight in international consciousness, maybe it could sort out my and Jimbo’s dry spell too!’
How to get involved
You don’t have to be a British archaeologist to get well and truly shagged (though it certainly helps!). ‘Shag an Archaeologist Day’ is open to everyone working or volunteering in any aspect of archaeology from anywhere in the world – and even those who used to be archaeologists but now have proper jobs.
First things first – you’ve gotta be innit to winnit, so join the facebook page by clicking ‘like.’ Second things second, invite all your friends to like it too – not just archaeologists either. Maybe that high school-crush you facebook friended (but haven’t actually seen or talked to for 19 years) might pony up with a mercy shag for old times sakes. We certainly hope so!
‘We’ve got 10,000 of these awesome T-shirts printed, in every size, shape and colour possible – women’s, men’s – you name it,’ said Stu, ‘we’ve got it!’
‘And if you buy one of our T-shirts,’ continued Jimbo, ‘and wear it on Saturday 23rd July for 24 hours straight, we absolutely guarantee you a shag, even if we have to come round to your house and do it ourselves.’
Well you can’t say fairer than that.
And that’s why diggingthedirt.com is throwing it’s social media savvy and website weight behind this valiant effort to get the archaeology profession laid.
