Austrian village changes of '****ing'' changes name

FfFfFfFF

Residents of an Austrian village will ring in the new year under a new name – Fugging – after ridicule of their signposts, especially on social media, became too much to bear.

They finally grew weary of ****ing, its current name, which some experts say dates back to the 11th century.

Minutes from a municipal council meeting published on Thursday showed that the village of about 100 people, 350km (215 miles) west of Vienna, will be named Fugging from 1 January 2021.

Increasing numbers of English-speaking tourists have made a point of stopping in to snap pictures of themselves by the signpost at the entrance to the village, sometimes striking lascivious poses for social media. Some have reportedly even stolen the signposts, leading the local authorities to use theft-resistant concrete when putting up replacements.

The village was first officially inhabited in about 1070, but local lore suggests that a sixth-century Bavarian nobleman called Focko actually founded the settlement. A map dating from 1825 used the spelling Fuking.

I‘m surprised they didn’t change it to another name because there is another Fugging near Sankt Pölten already and usually they add something behind it like a river or what else is there. But maybe it‘s because the village is in Upper Austria and not Lower Austria.

That's a shame. They could have really capitalized on that, really.

Inside, we are really made the same. 🕊

It's dumb of them not to monetize. Like others said, make it profitable, sell dildos, make a motel near the sign, make it into a tourist attraction. Sex sells!
