The move came after a growing number of calls by pranksters from abroad who ring up locals and ask “Is that F***ing” — before bursting into laughter and hanging up. The Austrian village's street signs are regularly stolen even though they are welded to steel posts set in concrete.
Mayor Franz Meindl said: “The phone calls are really the final straw. “I always wanted the name to stay but it’s just got too much now. The only problem is that we need all of the F***ing residents to agree to the name change. Everyone needs to agree for it to happen.
Around 100 villagers will this week hold a meeting to decide whether to switch the name to either ‘Fuking’ or ‘Fugging’.
Yeah, that'll do it.
