A VILLAGE BY ANY OTHER NAME.

   An Austrian village is being forced to bow to the power of the English language by changing its name

The people of  F- - -ing (pronounced Fooking) hadn't had a problem until pranksters began making fun of them.
Now the village is to vote on a switch and the 16th century version of the name - Fugging - is likely to be adopted.
Mayor Franz Meindl  confirmed his village street signs had regularly been stolen. The Mayor Say's, it's too much. The problem is we need all of the F---ing residents to agree to the name change for it to happen.
 Vest  is suggesting  a new marketing  scheme could bring  in lots of Dosh to the community if implemented.
At the moment tourists are being turned away from its news agency by being told "No we don't have any F---ing postcards.

A bloke in shorts Say's 'Wots the Aussie Saints name then pommy git". sez I,"Why it could be you St Asshole".

Thank You Jane for your telephone call in reply to my mail out to rello's-friends and important associates, It was the only response.

Ldl: maybe it is Saint Denys.
I was once informed that Sydney was a derivation of St Denys.
Taking a quick squiz, looks likely.
But then other states would complain, names such as Queensland's own saint, St Joe Bonkers Bananas.
