F**king village to vote on name change

By
Inhabitants of the Austrian village of F**king are to vote later this week about changing its name.

The village has been the subject of numerous jokes and pranks. For example, people have been calling up to ask "Is that F**king?" before hanging up, The Daily Telegraph reports.

In other instances couples have stripped off and frolicked in front of the village's sign. The sign has also been regularly stolen despite measures such as welding the sign to steel posts.

Mayor Franz Meindl said: "The phone calls are really the final straw."

The village, made up of around 100 residents, will vote on whether to change the name to 'Fugging', despite the amount of tourism they receive.

Local businesses have cashed in on the name with products branded F**king postcards, F**king Christmas cards and F**king beer.

In 2009, Meindl complained about the amount of attention the village has received.
