Meet the Fuckers?
An Austrian village with an amusingly obscene name has decided to throw in the towel and vote on whether to change it. The 100 odd residents of Fucking, in Upper Austria, are to vote this week on whether to change their hamlet's name to something less attractive to English-speaking visitors, the Daily Telegraph reports.
