Brits steal carloads of Austrian roadsigns

From The Register:
An Austrian village called F**king will not change its name despite sniggering Brits making off with its roadsigns.

Mayor Siegfried Hauppl has asked visitors to lay off the signs which began to attract outside attention after British and US soldiers passing through in 1945 illuminated the locals as to the English meaning of F**king, Ananova reports.


Read the whole thing, the author had a good time with it.

Rhetorical question: If the residents of Berlin are called Berliners, what are the residents of F**king called?
