Renaming a "Historic" Village.

Small village of 104 is having an issue with tourists
Fucking.  Please, not so fast!
Evidently the little town of Fucking Austria (pronounced "Fooking") is has been having a hard time keeping their signs from being stolen.

They've been cementing the signs, but it evidently doesn't help.

This week the residents are voting on a somewhat more drastic measure: a name change.  This isn't a change to be taken lightly as this village has been around for centuries.  It was named after a 6th century Bavarian nobleman and dates at least back until the year 1070.

That makes this village at least four times as old as the US.
