Thank you Google Translate - fun translation

:dm: Brilliant stuff. A local Spanish food festival becomes a clitoris festival thanks to inventive translation. :plus1:
... Local officials in As Pontes – population 11,000 – had written the announcement for the annual festival in Galician, one of the official languages of the northern Spanish region. They used Google Translate for the Spanish-language version of the text.

It meant the town’s “Feria do grelo” or rapini festival – held every February with tastings and awards for the best grelos – became “Feria clitoris” in Spanish.

The translated announcement read: “The clitoris is one of the typical products of Galician cuisine. Since 1981 ... the festival has made the clitoris one of the star products of its local gastronomy.”


García said the translation error was likely on the town’s official website for months before it was noticed late last week.


She believed the online translation tool mistook the Galician word for the Portuguese version, which refers to the vegetable but also can be used as slang for clitoris...

Seems like nobody really noticed that much. Another classic from Google translate.

That Google's got some race issues.

That said, Google photos people search is creepily good. Getting results down to infants.
