View Full Version : No F---ing Way!

It's All in a Name
British visitors find the name of F---ing, Austria, so funny they keep stealing the village signs. Local authorities are not amused. "We will not stand for the F---ing signs being removed," the town's police chief told the The Sunday Telegraph. "It may be very amusing for you British, but F---ing is simply F---ing to us. What is this big F---ing joke?" Local guide Andreas Behmueller says only the Brits seem to focus on the name -- Germans want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg, Americans are fascinated with the setting for The Sound of Music and the Japanese want to visit Hitler's birthplace in Braunau. "But for the British, it's all about F---ing," Behmueller said. Guesthouse manager Augustina Lindlbauer complains, "Just this morning I had to tell an English lady who stopped by that there were no F---ing postcards."

On a similar theme, I used to find it amusing in the American sitcom "Married with Children", that Peggy Bundys maiden name was Peggy [email protected] Never raised a titter with the audience when she said it,

Mmmm...purchased a car from a ******. Nigerian he was, and I tried so hard to pronounce it Onecar or Wwww anker…but they just said Mr ****** will send it down to you. Make the cheque out etc etc.

What about Prat’s Bottom in Kent? Strange that there is not more mention of that.

In Tennessee, there are places (house names etc ) called Gobbler’s Knob…I kid you not. I think it refers to a Rooster. But why the knob I don’t know.

One Brit had a number plate in CA of 'BOLLOKS' it seems that they did not know the meaning some years ago.

There's a wee village in Southern Ireland called Muff, and yes it does have a diving club (even though it's inland)

Similarly thelate Matt McGinn did a story about the village of Effen; mainly about the Effen bees and the Effen police.

And then there is the small village in Essex, called Ugley.

Where the parish notice board carries the notices of the meetings of the 'Ugley Women's Institute'.

(Abberrant apostrophe?)

There's a mountain in Austria called the Wank as well. They have held hang gliding comps on it. I recall the report opening along the lines: Great conditions for the Wank...:rolleyes:

Check this (http://www.wankerscorner.com) out. It's the Wankers Corner website. If I dine at the saloon I will ask them to hold the mayonnaise....

Also, see the cartoon character at the bottom....not sure if its a wind up or not.

Actually looking at it more closely it seems that Wankers Corner is just the name of the saloon, not the town. Still, a fine site.

There is also a W anker Beer (http://www.usbeerstuff.com/microl/pa/wa.htm)

There was a time when you could purchase t-shirts and baseball caps that carried the legend "I feel like a Wa nker"

If I knew where to find said merchandise I would willingly buy one for this months THRUSH Award winner.

You do have to wonder if the website owner is milking the double entenders though
