Welcome to Fucking, Austria

Silly Austrians...

Seriously though, what would you do if you lived in a town called Fucking? Personally, I would steal every single sign that existed in the town – kind of like the hundreds of British tourists that have done just that. But I would also be proud of my village – so it’s too bad that the town is set for a name change. Locals, or Fuckingers as they are known, say they are sick of visitors stealing signs. The village is close to the German border and gets its name from a 6th century Bavarian nobleman, Focko.
