It’s Pronounced FOO-king

Fucking, Austria:

is a small settlement in the Innviertel region of southwestern Upper Austria…

The settlement’s only significant feature is a traffic sign with its name on it at which English-speaking tourists invariably stop to have their photograph taken. The sign is the most often stolen street sign in Austria. A considerable portion of Fucking’s budget is spent on replacing the stolen signs.
