People in 'F---ing,' Austria, want to rename their town

There's a town in Austria called "Fucking." Seriously.

It's actually pronounced "fooking" but of course, there's no way to resist using the alternate, more familiar pronunciation. And so, the people of Fucking want to change the town's name.

"The only problem is that we need all of the F**king residents to agree to the name change," Mayor Franz Meindl said -- speaking literally, you can assume, and not colloquially, in a recent TV interview. "Everyone needs to agree for it to happen."

The townsmen have several problems with it, including stolen road signs with Fucking's name, prank phone calls, and a feeling of anxiety when filling out forms with their address.

Good luck to the total of 104 people who live there.
