No Fugging change for Austrian Fuckers


Share This Article:

The small Fucking population has been denied the right to alter the name of their town from Fucking to Fugging, as the latter name is already in use.

The village’s title is believed to have derived from a 6th century Bavarian nobleman Focko, who founded the small settlement.

Since British soldiers noticed the village whilst stationed at nearby Salzburg during WWII, tourists have dashed to the 104 resident strong village in Upper Austria - determined to have their picture taken next to a Fucking street sign.

Some even attempted a bit of al fresco intimacy underneath the sign.

However the local residents are unimpressed and unamused at the spate of tourism that has, over recent years turned its attention to their small village.

Tired of mocking British tourists, Fucking police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger commented on the increasing opportunistic British enthusiasm for stealing street signs bearing the unusual name: "We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed," the officer said. “It may be very amusing for you British, but Fucking is simply Fucking to us. What is the big Fucking joke? It is puerile."

Puerile it may be, but the village is, for the time being, forced to retain its Fucking name  - making it unlikely that giggling British tourists will divert their attention.

Perhaps nearby mountain ‘Wank’ will be the next stop on the tourist trail.
