The fine village of Fucking, Austria, now has a fine beverage named for it!

“In German the word for a lager beer is a Helles beer, so we have also patented the name Fucking Hell, which means lager from Fucking, of course. I don’t understand why the patents office think of something else. They must have dirty minds.”

We think kids would be a lot more interested in geography if they knew about this.

“We could not calculate directions between San Diego, CA and Fucking, Austria.”

I had a vacation in Bayerisch Eisenstein in Germany when I was there as a big wee lad. Not too far from Fucking.

It’s just down the road from Cöckgobbling. If I remember my geography aright. One exit from Kewnt on the autobahn.

Hmmm… the adjacent villages are “Wolfing” and “Haid” – there’s a joke in there someplace.

This also shed some light on where the Amish might get their peculiar place-naming habits (example).

@baked: Better yet, you can totally avoid Blue Ball(s) if you go straight from Reamstown to Intercourse

+1 !!
did you notice how close paradise is to intercourse and blue ball?

@baked: Heh. The Amish can teach us a thing or two about what to do with all that time on your hands when you’re not putzing about with motorized parts, eh?
