I did wonder as 'smackingly' is rarely used in the UK, let alone in Poland. Was the intention to make the phrase unanswerable I wonder.....

Is it the same as 'kiss my ass' ?

"Caluj mi dupe" Really?

@Lyzko
More precisely - Pocałuj mnie w dupę - a very popular saying in Poland.

Thanks for the correction, Alien. Almost a calque translation of "Leck mir mal am Arsch".

Actually - Leck mich am Arsch.

In Berlin slang, often Dat. and Acc. are confused. As it's a classic idiom, trust me, even those of us who know which is the correct version such as I, can get away with a slight correction:-)

Rarely still gives some hope. If you said it is never used, in Atch`s style, I would be worried. But rarely is enough to accept it. :):):)

Was the intention to make the phrase unanswerable I wonder.....

:):):) Relax, you wonder unnecessarily. Drop those suspicions - nobody wants to hurt you here. hahahahaha

this is not in the original phrase.

Yes, it is. :):):) You don`t mean what I know., :):):)

I repeat the idiom: kiss sb`s ass smackingly.

After checking the word, I can change it into: kiss sb`s bum/bottom smackingly.

Or to smack kiss sb`s bum.

Maybe in larger constructions like 'gobsmackingly'?

For me (US) I would only use it in 'lip smackingly'....

kiss sb`s ass smackingly.

What is the Polish for smackingly? :) :)

'gobsmackingly'?

I know it exists but I've never used it. Gobsmacked definitely.

For me (US) I would only use it in 'lip smackingly'....

Me too but it's not something I've heard in a long time.

Kiss sb fondly, uttering loud wet sounds during the process. :):):)

This fondly is important to understand the idiom which has always existed in Polish but has been used rarely. Like smackingly. hahahaha

Recently it has reappeared in the media. And my neighbour used it in our conversation about 15 years ago.

I suspect there is no Polish equivalent which is why Alien said it's not in the original phrase. I'm not going to get this.

Alien said it's not in the original phrase.

He meant the most popular phrase about kissing sb`s ass while I am offering a less known one.

I'm not going to get this.

Don`t despair. I will help you as usual but later on coz now I must hit my Jap sumo wrestler mattress. :):):)

First, is smack kissing sb`s ass fondly a voluntary or forced activity???

I hope it would be voluntary .......

Exactly!!!

Now, think - why do certain people feel they should voluntarily smack kiss sb`s ass???

I have commented on Joker`s bragging about his attendance of Polish weddings:

You came to a wedding as przychodniok - observing it from behind the fence.

It is an old local word which isn`t very widespread. I heard in the first and last time at the countryside wedding in 1985.

Is it 'cmoknij mnie w dupę'?

I was sidetracked by 'smackingly' and kept thinking 'smacznie'... somehow.... then I remembered the word cmok / cmoknąć

The word you provided is correctly used in the idiom indeed.
But you shouldn`t use it in imperative coz we have already established the action is voluntary.

uderzajac
Also to talk 'smack' which would be using snarky vocabulary like Harry use to do.

Did they teach you a thing or two with a long overdue needed reality check for you ?

That would mean that you are full of bullsh!t or lies.

It wasn't meant to be funny.
I just didn't want to go into detail for your sake.
Let me try again, "you are like a red rag to a bull."

A forerunner of a hint:
