The nekkid young men would then wipe off the blood and laugh. The laughing part was very important. No one knows why.
Then the priests skinned the goat and dog and made tiny whip-like-thongs out of the skins, handing it to the young men.
The slicked up hotties then chased young women throughout the streets of Rome with the intention of slapping them with the skins. Women thus "annointed" were said to instantly become fertile.
