Do they have one-man canoe races?

Who cares!

There is one in southern Illinois.

Or did I find the wrong one?

It had to be a translation error.

I mean: do Spanish men even have a concept that women can have orgasms?

I'm still upset that the Garlic Festival was not in fact a Gar Lick Festival and didn't involve performing cunniligus on ovulating freshwater needlefish.

I remember Paul discussing this festival in his epistle to the Galicians.

Men confused about the location of Galacia?

Aye.  There's the rub.

For some reason, my wife kept making me drive slow circles around the place and occasionally go real fast through the middle of town.

All I know is they have the best white wine in Spain...

As a ham radio operator, I'm very familiar with where Galicia is.  It's the bit of Spain just north of Portugal.

Don't forget about the Galicia region in Eastern Europe, where loads of Jewish peasants once lived (that changed during the last century).

So yes, there are two Galicias. Same as with the clitoris (I don't know; I'm into dudes).
 
2015-11-02 2:01:21 PM  
Is it on the Isle of Lesbos?

Good one. But seriously, Galicia is due North of Portugal, in Spain. The Spanish have traditionally made jokes about Galicians being slow, the way Canadians make fun of the Newfoundlanders.

Galicia, being due North of Portugal and due South of the British Isles is noted for its ancient contacts with the North Atlantic Coast. Like Calabria, which is to the East of Galicia, it has deep ties, even prehistoric ties, with the Atlantic Coast from Portugal to the Hebrides.

The Atlantic Modal haplotype (Y Chromosome) dominates men along the Atlantic Coast. It is associated in particular with the Basques but by no means exclusive to them.

One of my Portuguese ancestors has very nearly the same Y chromosome as one of the my French ancestors. There are several ways this could have happened and many times in the last 10,000 years that the two lines could have branched off from each other. The coasts and the rivers of Europe are a prehistoric highway still much travelled to this day by refugees and smugglers.

It is all very mysterious.

It only goes to show that all roads lead to Rome, even the mysterious path to the clitoris.

And then finish with a counterclockwise swirl?

I thought to myself, "self, why would they have a clitoris festival on the Galactica?"
 
2015-11-02 2:09:24 PM  
Can be a delicious first course, or on the side. Flavors range from citrus to buttery, rarely including a cilantro overtone. Also commonly served al tonno, or as a tartare accompaniment, in addition to classic pairing with serious pork. (Sometimes found with clams)

Not recommended with cheese.

Rapini is delicious, and versatile.

wait, you are still talking about the clitoris right?
 
2015-11-02 2:11:07 PM  
So the Galician word 'grelo' which is a leafy green vegetable was misunderstood as Portugese and mistranslated into the Spanish clitoris. Got it....maybe

I suppose that depends on the translation package being used.
