Unscrewed and replaced – The fucking finals in Austria – News...


Double gg instead of ck – a small change with a big effect. And from now on the village of Fucking will become Fugging.

Workers unscrewed the place name signs with the dirty name on Wednesday and replaced them with those with the more harmless name.

The fucking final in Austria – hopefully this is the end of slippery remarks or obscene photos, which were particularly popular with tourists from English-speaking countries. Again and again they published such photos on Internet platforms – and often enough they took the signs with them. Much to the annoyance of the residents.
But now it’s over: at a council meeting of the 84-souls village at the end of November, the renaming was decided – under pressure from the villagers, who lived near the signs and were even harassed by tourists. The renaming should also officially take effect in January.

A YouTube video of two Danes who ran from house to house in September and asked what happened to the “fucking” caused the hammy barrel to overflow. “They wanted to know if they wouldn’t … well, you know,” says Maria L. (49) with no smile at all. “That’s where the fun ends for me. Now is the end of fun! “

Her husband initiated a signature campaign, 56 Fuckingers voted to rename the place, which was first mentioned in 1070 when Adalpert von Vuckingen lived here. A few hundred years earlier there should have been a settlement called “Focko”.

In the 19th century the name Fuking was in use – today nobody can say where the infamous C came from.

On the sales platform willhaben.at, a provider with the strange place name wanted to make some real money again and offered the sign there. It was auctioned for 2499 euros – however, the seller emphasized, it was not an original sign, but a copy. It is still an eye-catcher.
