FUCKING da town

WAIT!! Don't judge yet when you see da FUCKING word. I'm not cursing...

See this first. It's an Austrian village named FUCKING, in the municipality of Tarsdorf, in the Innviertel region of western Upper Austria. The village is located 33 kilometres north of Salzburg, four kilometres east of the German border.


Are the residents called Fuckers?
What are the mothers called?
What would you be learning at the Fucking High School ?
Does the Fucking Hospital help you with anything else?
If your friend came from another town, he wouldn't be your Fucking friend.




I retype the article so that it's easier for you to read.
LONDON: (AFP) British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly named village.
White British visitors are finding it hillarious, the residents of Fucking are failing to see the funny side.
Only one kind of criminal ever stalkes the sleepy 32-house village near Salzburg on the German border – cheeky British tourists armed with a sense of humour and a screwdriver.
But the local authorities are hitting back and with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.
“We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed,” the office said.
“It may be very amusing for you British, but Fucking is simply Fucking to us. What is this big Fucking joke? It is puerile.”
Local tourist guide Andreas Behmueller said it was only the British that had a fixation with Fucking.
“The Germans all want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg,” he explained.
“Every American seems to care only about The Sound of Music (the 1965 film shot around Salzburg). The occasional Japanese wants to see Hitler’s birthplace in Brauman.
“But for the British, it’s all about Fucking.”
Guesthouse manager Augustina Lindbauer described the village’s breathtaking lakes, forests and vistas.
“Yet still there is this obsession with Fucking,” she said.
“Just this morning I had to tell an English lady who stopped by that there were no Fucking postcards.”

This village does exists!! Go check out Google.



Now, this one is really good!
The sign says 'Bitte! Nicht so schnell', which in English translates to 'Please! Not so fast!



More tidbits, and it gets even funnier! ..
Pronounced 'fooking'.
The little hamlet of Fucking is named after the man who founded the village in the 6th century.
His name? Focko.

NOW YOU CAN FORWARD THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE FUCKING TOWN. =)
