Tourists are causing a lot of anxiety and [are costing] money to a tiny
village where signs keep disappearing.
What do the signs read? "Welcome to Fucking, Austria".
Pronounced "fooking", the little hamlet of Fucking is named after the man
who founded the village in the 6th century. His name? Focko. (As in, "Hey!
Watch where you're going, fooko!")
The town sign has been stolen seven times in the last few months. With signs
costing several hundred dollars a piece, much of the tiny town's budget is
being spent replacing the signs, says Siegfried Hoeppel, the Mayor of
Fucking (HEE HEE HEE!). He went on to express his hope that further thefts
will be avoided through the use of increased concrete and... bigger screws.
