LONDON, (AFP) - British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly-named village.

While British visitors are finding it hilarious, the residents of F---ing are failing to see the funny side, The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.
...

But the local authorities are hitting back and with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.

Apparently the local burghers started a poster campaign with English language posters up all over the village to discourage the British from this activity, but the posters went missing as well.

"Will the British please stop pinching the Fucking sign"

Great, now they'll be left with a solidly mounted pole in the ground after the people simply unbolt the sign from the pole...

Don't you get the feeling that these Austrian chappies are missing out a bit on the souvenir market?

Should be selling little fridge magnets etc with "I've been to Fucking Austria" or words to that effect.

Mind you, the Brits will still nick the sign, just because it's there. Big grin

That has absolutely made my day!

Some more quality quotes from the article:

"We will not stand for the F---ing signs being removed," the officer told the broadsheet.

What is this big F---ing joke?

Local guide Andreas Behmueller said it was only the British that had a fixation with F---ing.

"But for the British, it's all about F---ing."

"Yet still there is this obsession with F---ing," she said.

"Just this morning I had to tell an English lady who stopped by that there were no F---ing postcards."


Thats pure brilliance!

Suggestion for the burghers of Fucking, Austria.

Make more signs and sell them to the tourists.

Yellowknife in the NWT did this when the 'Ragged Ass Rd' street sign kept getting stolen.

The brits needs to learn about the wonders of a battery operated reciprocating saw.

They could have the sign, post and all, in like 2 minutes.

Or just invest in a wrench (spanner, for the brits) and unbolt the sign. Geez.

Which tells us something about all the Fucking going on in England, or rather NOT going on, so they need memorabilia reminding them "hey remember those days when Fucking was more than just a sign at the wall...?"  Wink

I do believe British Servicemen (who are all closet kleptomaniacs!) would have no trouble at all removing any sign, concreted or otherwise.

The squadrons I have been on in Germany all had various "souvenir's" in the crew rooms (and it wasn't limited to other ranks either, the officers were just as bad!) And we didn't need tools - brute force, ignorance and low cunning usually sufficed.

If the worst came to the worst (or should that be "wurst"?), they would take the concrete too Big grin

Really good t-shirt idea:
I went to F*cking to get a F*cking sign that said "F*cking", and all I got was this F*cking lousy t-shirt!

Just as good if not better:

Don't F*ck with the F*cking sign!
