Mensagem:  Pal, did you go to Octoberfeast last year? 

What is this urge to translate every cotton picking, pea packing, pickerel stripping word from Portuguese into English?

I hear that in the USA they are looking for good translations for feijoada, samba, carnaval, capoeira, gaucho, etc. for people on their way to River of January or the River of the Humongous Women.  Well, I think I'll put on a CD by Bob Charles now.
