    Warning...you may bust a gut laughing at this article. Don't forget to read the comments. A few funny bits from the article.

    Moves are now afoot to change the village name to something less distinctive.

    “The only problem is that we need all of the ******ing residents to agree to the name change,” Mayor Franz Meindl said –speaking literally, you can assume, and not colloquially, in a recent TV interview. “Everyone needs to agree for it to happen.”

    ******ingers — there are only 104 of them — have tired of the giggles and endless jokes that follow the mention of their village, which is properly pronounced Fooking.

    Lothar Lerch, who has highlighted F..king for website Virtual Tourist, recommends a road trip from Kissing, Germany to F..king, Austria. A direct route from Kissing to F,,king, he says, takes just over two hours, but he advises a scenic route including stops in Petting or Tittmoning.

    Two hours is far too long for that. They need to shorten their route!

    I would love to hear from those opposed to the motion in favor of the name change.
