Fucking, Austria

Fucking (pronounced 'Fooking') is a small settlement in Upper Austria. The village is known to have existed as Fucking since 1070 and is named after a man from the 6th century called Focko. The settlement's only significant feature is a sign with its name on it at which English speaking tourists invariably stop to have their photograph taken. The sign is the most often stolen one in Austria. Most of Fucking's budget is spent on replacing the stolen signs.
