October 30th, 2008: A small town Rated R

A Little Austrian Town Named . .

The newspaper article below is even funnier than the sign!






Are the residents called Fuckers?

What are the mothers called?

What would you be learning at the Fucking High School?

Does the Fucking Hospital help you with anything else?

If your friend came from another town, he wouldn't be your Fucking friend.










HungLikeJesus  Thursday Oct 30 11:19 PM

I thought maybe that was an Onion article, so I did a search.

They had this to say on Wikipedia:

Quote:
The village is located 33 kilometres north of Salzburg, four kilometres east of the German border and half an hour by car from the town of Petting, in Bavaria. It's often said that "It's just not that far from Petting to Fucking."



Cicero  Thursday Oct 30 11:23 PM

nu uh!! No way! And it's next to petting and fisching? I didn't know my health (sex ed)teachers were trying to tell me where to go...It all makes sense now. Fucking, petting, and fisching, all right there ay? Sick!



Nirvana  Thursday Oct 30 11:26 PM

uh huh! LOL!

Cicero  Thursday Oct 30 11:29 PM

Arnold from there? It would explain a lot.



Cloud  Thursday Oct 30 11:30 PM

Pretty Fucking Funny.

In Pennsylvania, we are rather more polite about naming our towns.

SPUCK  Friday Oct 31 04:19 AM

Wow..

We lived in Salzburg. Got our only (normal) Dachshund there. He was my big brother since he was born a year before me. They don't make them like him anymore. Sad. They've bred them all into miniatures. He was twice the size of today's 'standard'. He was one tough muthafucker(?)



rupip  Friday Oct 31 05:10 AM

I live in Salzburg and know about Fucking - never been there...

but I can deliver a litte explanation:
Fuck comes from Fock and is a dialect-word for Pig.
In that region it is very common to have an ing-ending on village-names.

200hundres years ago this was probably only a pig-farm or a region where pigs were farmed...

but I have no idea where Petting derives from...



birdclaw  Friday Oct 31 09:57 AM

Gosh I kinda wanna move there just so I can say "I am proud to be a fucker." Has a nice ring to it.



glatt  Friday Oct 31 10:00 AM

a resident of Fucking would be a Fuckinger.

And then people would laugh and you'd be one funny fucker.

Those people are so competitive.


lumberjim  Friday Oct 31 10:08 AM

if you did something like a fuckinger did it, you'd be doing it fuckingerly?

if you were like a fuckinger, you'd be fuckingerish?



Shawnee123  Friday Oct 31 12:10 PM

Why wouldn't they be a Fuckerite?

I know I like it when it's done right.



Sundae  Friday Oct 31 12:14 PM

Nah - a resident of Fuck is surely a Fucker.

And I imagine it runs in the family.
If your Mum and Dad are Fuckers, you'll probably be a Fucker too. And unless something happens to change things, you'll marry a Fucker. Making your children Fuckers. Generations of Fuckers, how cosy.



lumberjim  Friday Oct 31 12:36 PM

YABBUT
the town is called FuckING, not Fuck



Sundae  Friday Oct 31 12:36 PM

Yeah - and I live in London and am called a Londoner!
You foreigner :p



lumberjim  Friday Oct 31 12:49 PM

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH?!



Shawnee123  Friday Oct 31 01:30 PM



Anyone remember Johnny Fuckerfaster? Baby's first dirty joke!



Sundae  Friday Oct 31 01:35 PM

Fucker, Fuckinger. Fucking foreigners fucking up the Queen's Engerlish. All the same to me. Chris.



Shawnee123  Friday Oct 31 02:10 PM

@SG

psst, who's Chris? Was that a quote, because I found it hilarious without even getting the reference.



Gravdigr  Friday Oct 31 02:42 PM

Fuck fuck fuckitty fuck fucking fuck fuck fuck. You fucking fuck.

I once heard a joke (can't remember the joke itself, fuck!) in which the punchline went (something) like: "Well, I got a duck for a fuck, a fuck for a duck, and a twenty dollar bill for a fucked up duck."



Shawnee123  Friday Oct 31 02:42 PM

thnort! I remember that joke, but only remember the punchline, too.

Actually it might be funnier just being a random name...
But LJ's clip featured Chris Rock sounding off at Jackie Chan, who simply stood there bemused.


Cicero  Friday Oct 31 03:02 PM

No No. You guys have it all wrong. Locals are fucking townies.



Shawnee123  Friday Oct 31 03:14 PM

I almost fucked a townie, in college.

@ SG, oh, missed the clip. The sound in my new office seems to emanate from somewhere near my tower, yet the speakers are on the desk, so listening to vids is out right now.

But chris would have been funny, especially if you meant to say christ and missed the t.

Chris Tucker, Fucker.


HungLikeJesus  Friday Oct 31 03:24 PM

You mean Christ ucker?



Nirvana  Friday Oct 31 05:51 PM

I love this Fucking thread! Wonder what Google will do with it?
BTW are the wee ones of this town calling Fucklings?



ZenGum  Friday Oct 31 07:16 PM

In vaguely related news, the BBC brings us this gem:
