F*cking (with a u instead of *), Austria has existed since 1070. It’s named after a man from the 6th century named Focko. The ending “ing” is actually an old German suffix indicating the people of the root word to which it is attached. Therefore, F*cking means “place of Fockos people”. F*cking is a small village with about 104 people. The town is most famous for their traffic signs and tourists tend to take pictures next to them. In August 2005, the road signs were replaced with theft resistant ones that were welded to steel and secured in concrete.
The new signs were needed, because people kept stealing the signs for the town’s name. Sign theft has decreased greatly, but it still remains a problem in the village. Apparently the British are most to blame for the problem. Of all the nations, British people steal the “F*cking” signs the most; not the Americans!
