German town's name will stay Puke
Officials in a German town named Kotzen, or Puke, have voted against changing its name.
The town was created when the villages of Kotzen, Kriele and Landin merged last year.
The name has a tradition of putting a smile on the faces of visitors, writes the Maerkische Oderzeitung.
They were united under the offensive Kotzen name, and residents were given until the end of June to pick a different name.
However, it appears they were unable to come up with an agreeable alternative and it was left to officials to make a final decision.
In the end they voted 5-3 against a name change.
