Default Austrian Village is F**king Tired of you Mocking its Name!!

Quote:
The village of ****ing, 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 ****ing residents just want to be f**king left alone. Which is why the village is now mulling a name change. ****ingers 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.​

I remember a few months ago seeing something on tv about this town. People from all over the world were going there to pose with the signs and steal them. I think it was visited by the "jackass" guys in either the show or one of the movies.

That name could describe a lot of towns.

German and Austrian for "Have a good drive" is "Gute Farhte"
