You Can Trust Some Emails You Get.

This morning – he sends me one about a town in Austria called “Fucking”. Yup. That’s the name of the town, along with a shot of MapPoint revealing it’s location, and a shot of the city sign as you enter the limits. Of course, it’s a big sign that says, “Fucking”.

Looks like another hoax email. I was all ready to hit the delete button when I thought, “Well, maybe….?” So I did a Wikipedia search. Sure enough – I came across this entry. Well gosh darn. I guess it IS real. Who woulda’ thunk it. Better yet, the online resident expert on hoaxes, Snopes, confirms it as well.

So guys – just be careful next time you say, “Fucking Austria.” Someone might think you’re talking about the place, and not just calling Austria a place with a bunch of damned idjits. While both may be true, you most likely mean the second.
