Fucking, Austria is Totally Fed Up with Its F*cking Name
"Where are you from?"
"I'm from Fucking, Austria."
Yes, that punctuation is correct and yes this is a conversation held god knows how many times in the last slew of decades, as residents of the Austrian town Fucking explain that yes, that's really the name of the town and, yes, it's been the name of the town since the 18th century, so shut up.
All was fine and dandy for the 108 residents of Fucking, until the postcard sales and tourist bus revenue was sullied by petty crime. You see, The Telegraph UK tells us that the town's name sign has been stolen 13 times, and at £250 each, it's no wonder Fucking is tired of all that...well, fucking around.
So they're going to change the name. The final decision hasn't been made, but you'll be happy to hear that the new name will likely just be a variation of the word. Suggestions include adding an extra "g" to the end," or replacing the "ck" with "gg." We don't know about you, but a town named "Fuckingg" is actually funnier to us; we'd rather have that sign.
Hey, at least there's always good old Intercourse, PA.
