fuck it...residents of Austrian village Fucking who voted against changing the village's name. Spokesman Siegfried Hoeppl said, "Everyone here knows what it means in English, but for us Fucking is Fucking - and it`s going to stay Fucking." The name came from a Mr Fuck who settled in the area with his family 100 years ago.

Similar votes on a name change have taken place recently in neighbouring Austrian towns Wank am see and Petting, as well as in Vomitville and Windpassing. [ananova]
