Austrian residents of "Fucking" are mad!

This sign carries the hilarity even further: "Bitte - nicht so schnell!" is German for "Please - not so fast!"
British tourists
constantly stealing the signs for their oddly named village.
the residents of Fucking are failing to see the funny side.
local authorities are hitting back with the signs now set in concrete
"We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed," the officer said.
"It may be very amusing for you British, but Fucking is simply Fucking to us. What is this big Fucking joke?
The Germans all want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg
Every American seems to care only about 'The Sound of Music'
Japanese wants to see Hilter's birthplace in Braunau
But for the British, it's all about Fucking
Guesthouse manager Augustina Lindelbauer described the village's breathtaking lakes, forests and vistas. "Yet still there is this obsession with Fucking," she said. "Just this morning I had to tell an English lady that there were no Fucking postcards."
Pronounced "fooking," the little hamlet of Fucking is named after the man who founded the village in the 6th century. His name? Focko.
