Not so fast!


Fucking is a town in Austria.



So the town was named after this dude Focko, who founded the town. Fucking means "Focko's people," is pronounced to rhyme with the english "looking," and has been the name of this Austrian town since at least 1070. But they've got such a problem with people stealing signs to the town that in 2004, they actually considered changing their name. Siegfried Hoeppel, the Mayor of Fucking, went on to express his hope that further thefts will be avoided through the use of increased concrete and . . . bigger screws.




AND...
"Bitte — nicht so schnell!"
is German for
"Please — not so fast!"
