    Default Austrian village is f**king tired of you mocking its name


    How cool would it be to live here??
    The village of Fucking, Austria, has 104 residents, many of whom are really f**king tired of tourists stealing road signs with the village's name and being mocked for bearing the name of a 6th-century Bavarian nobleman named Focko (the village's name is derived from an 18th-century spelling). Mostly, the Fucking residents just want to be f**king left alone. Which is why the village is now mulling a name change. Fuckingers will vote this week whether to alter the hamlet's name, with some in favor of reverting to the 16th century spelling, replacing "ck" with a single or double "g." Others want to keep the name, either out of tradition or to keep the tourist money flowing.​

    Classic. I saw another sign from Fucking which also had a small sign advising motorists that there was a school nearby, a picture of some children and a simple message, "Bitte, nicht so schnell", Literally, "Please not so fast". Genius.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
