Folks, I Don't Make Up This Stuff!

You have to wonder why the bicycle
was left there. Maybe
someone was
inspired to steal off to the bushes?

(For the full story, go here. Go. Go. You know you want to...)

I saw a similar article about this very same town, a year or two ago, and more or less forgot about it. But when my friend Will posted this one on Facebook, I finally decided to share it with y'all.

I'm not even going to add any smartass comments of my own.

No, really.

Thanks for your time.

  2. LOL at 'Bitte nicht so Schnell@ ! You'd think they might decide to change the name if it's causing such a problem.

  4. I'd heard of this before. The logical results of a world with lots of languages spoken on it, I guess.

    And Subby, according to the article the Americans aren't the problem - apparently we go up to Salzburg to look at Maria's alpine meadow. It's the Brits who are stealing the signs. Americans wouldn't take the sign - they'd giggle and take pictures of Mom and Dad and the kids standing next to it.

  6. Cinnamon: Sometimes people have the attitude of "Why should we change? You're the one who has the problem with it." My first fiancee's last name was "Horr." I'll always wonder if the reason she said "yes" to my proposal was the thought of changing her last name to mine.

    Roy: "Americans wouldn't take the sign - they'd giggle and take pictures of Mom and Dad and the kids standing next to it." I concur completely.

  10. Yeah, if you ignore the fact that it's the name of a town, some of the quotes are pretty funny, taken out of context: "We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed," "What is this big Fucking joke?" "Yet still there is this obsession with Fucking," "...there were no Fucking postcards." Maybe it is somewhat "puerile" to laugh at it, but I'll take my humor wherever I can get it nowadays.

  13. IANO: Did Brits travel there to steal the town signs, too?

    Megan:Yeah, my first. There was another one, later. I never married either of them. In other words, this turkey's head was on the block twice, but the axe never fell!

  14. We have our very own--if a bit more formal--Intercourse, Pennsylvania.

    Of course, this leads to the following corny gag:

    Man: "What's the best way to get to Intercourse?"
    Gas Station Attendant: "A lot of foreplay."
