    And here was me thinking this was about firetrucks...

    It was in the British papers too, one had a quote from a resident "this place probably began when a F---ing family arrived in this area..."

    I was going to call shenanigans on this one, but according to snopes.com its true.

    Google if you want the link, I won't post it because it has, gasp, unedited pictures of the aforementioned town's nasty roadsigns.

    Yeah.. the one about "please proceed slowly and watch for children" underneath the name of the town?

    wikipedia has a great entry as well.

    See, all my (short) life I've been saying punctuation is everything. Observe:

    Example A: "I wanna go to F--king Austria"

    Example B: "I wanna go to F--king, Austria"
