  • Nice name of a village

    That's what I found on a German- webpage comparable to google

    http://magazine.web.de/de/themen/lif...3484VPUxb.html

    (this is no fake!!)

    Summary of the text:

    This sign is the sign at the entrance of the Village of ****ing in Oberoesterreich (In the township of Tarsdorf in the County of Branau am Inn in Austria).
    100 people do live there.
    A lot of tourists, especially from english speaking countries, are visiting ****ing.
    The people of ****ing do have a big problem:
    This signs r stolen again and again...
    Now these signs have to be welded, concreded or riveted.

    I once knew a guy who said, "I'll step over any nine to get to three threes!"

    I knew at that precise moment that he and I would never get into a fistfight over a woman.

      I assume this is the village of "urine"?
      "...and the taking of a life is murder. And the punishment for murder is.... well it varies from state to state and by race, but...." - Homer J Simpson.

      Police: "Stop and we'll shoot!"
      Dilbert: "Stop AND we'll shoot? If you're gonna shoot, why should we stop?"
      Police: "Well, it would be alot easier for us. The targets at the shooting range don't run."

            The village is known to have existed as "F***ing" since at least 1070 and is named after a man from the 6th century called Focko. "-ing" is an old Germanic suffix indicating the people of the root word to which it is attached; thus F***ing means "(place of) Focko’s people."[4] The village has a population of 104.

            F***ing's most famous feature is a traffic sign with its name on it, beside which tourists often stop to have their photograph taken. It is a commonly stolen street sign.[5] Significant public funds have been spent on replacing the stolen signs.[6]

            In 2004, mainly due to the stolen signs, a vote was held on changing the village's name, but the residents voted against doing so.[4] In August 2005, the road signs were replaced with theft-resistant signs welded to steel and secured in concrete to prevent further chances of the sign being stolen.[6] Few thefts have since occurred, but remain a problem.

                LOL!
                For every one hundred men you send us,
                Ten should not even be here.
                Eighty are nothing but targets.
                Nine of them are real fighters;
                We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
                Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
                And he will bring the others back.

                  Not as good as the aforementioned name, but there's a Climax, PA & Intercourse, PA.
                  Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.
