Sorry to not give more notice, but the subject event (which included a greased sucking pig last year) takes place on the beachfront in Playa San Juan at noon today.  If you have never witnessed this event, get on your bike, you are in for a treat.

No, it really was advertised as a greased sucking pig last year.  That's what made it so amusing. 

And the subject is the exact phrasing of the billing of the event this year. 

Clearly they are using a different translation engine this year.  Perhaps running it from Spanish to Vietnamese to Bulgarian then English.

I wish I'd known earlier .... I was in the area, wondering what to do?
