F***ing vote on whether to change village name

275x250.jpg Residents in an Austrian village are apparently set to vote on whether to change its name… well it is called of Fucking (yes really).

The 104 residents have become annoyed by the constant ridicule and attention the name attracts the hamlet -- and the fact their road signs are constantly being stolen.

Locals also say it is a common sight to see semi-naked women posing for photographs beside the Fucking signs.

One option being considered is to readopt its 16th-Century spelling which would see the village called Fugging.

The modern spelling was adopted in the 18th Century and the name is said to have derived from Focko, a 6th Century Bavarian nobleman.
