If you lived in a town named "#ing", would you try and have the name changed? The good people of #ing, Austria recently voted on this exact issue,
and they chose not to change the name of their town.
Spokesman Siegfried Hoeppl, said: "Everyone here knows what it means in English, but for us F*cking is F*cking - and it's going to stay
F*cking - even though the signs keep getting stolen."
He said the name came from Mr F*ck and his family who settled in the area 100 years ago, and added "ing", meaning village or settlement.
