KNOWING.... the biblical way.

So, there's this little town in


And the town sign keeps getting stolen.

No shit, Sherlock.

The Austrians aren't amused.

I am.

"British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly named village.

While British visitors are finding it hilarious, the residents of Fucking are failing to see the funny side.

Only one kind of criminal stalks the sleepy 32-house village near Salzburg on the German border - cheeky British tourists armed with a sense of humor and a screwdriver.

But the local authorities are hitting back with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.

"We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed," the officer said."

Apparently, only the British tourists are obsessed with Fucking.

"The Germans all want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg," according to local tourist guide Andreas Beumueller. "Every American seems to care only about 'The Sound of Music' (the 1965 film shot around Salzburg.) The occasional Japanese wants to see Hilter's birthplace in Braunau."

"Bitte - nicht so schnell!" is German for "Please - not so fast!"
