Google Translate Turns A Broccoli Raab Festival Into The World's First "Clitoris Festival"
What does grelo, the leafy-green vegetable native to northwestern Spain, have in common with the human vagina? Unless there are any exotic sex positions we're unaware of, not much. That is, unless you live in the town of As Pontes in Galicia, which holds a yearly festival honoring the vegetable, also known as "rapini," or "broccoli raab" in the U.S. It's the Galician equivalent of Lollapalooza, we're guessing.
When local officials attempted to translate the Galician word "grelo" into Castilian Spanish for their website, Google Translate mistook it for the Portuguese word "grelo." Which, it turns out, is slang for a part of the female anatomy. The resulting translation invited tourists to take part in a "Clitoris Festival" -- or to be more exact, "the Fair of the Clitoris Bridges," which sounds like something out of Tolkien's private notebooks.
GoogleHopefully they organize a crossover with Japan's dong festival.
