F--king, Austria Considers Changing Its Name (NSFW)

The prank calls were the last straw.

The Sun reports that residents of F--king, Austria are set to vote on whether to change their town's name.

And just to be clear, we are dashing out the "u" and "c" for the sake of our more sensitive readers. This town bears the same name as one of those words you're not supposed to mention on TV or in the classroom.

The constant sign-stealing and mockery from tourists have rubbed many locals the wrong way.

"The only problem is that we need all of the F--king residents to agree to the name change," Mayor Franz Meindl told the Sun. "Everyone needs to agree for it to happen."

The Telegraph writes that the village of 104 residents was pretty much unknown until U.S. troops were stationed in the area at the end of WWII.

The paper describes how the town got its name in the first place:

Maybe they should change the name to Intercourse, like the town in Pennsylvania. Google it. :)

There's been countless stories on that town having their signs stolen. Might be past time they consider this.

Been there. Everyone had a big smile on their face and seemed to be enjoying Intercourse very much.
