Just looked for it in France's locations list, but it's not showing up (no bills registered there?). The town of Condom:

Effin Co. Limerick was mentioned before.
Last week I was about 5km from Effin and would have liked to get a note or two , but it was getting late and I had to drive back to Galway.

With the search option in EBT you can only find cities where notes were registered in the last year.
So if the last note here was registered more than 1 year ago, it won't show up.

There is no listing in the EBT database for it, I wonder is it because the village is part of the municipality of Tarsdorf, which is listed? If I were to enter a note from Fucking, Austria today (obviously I can't) what would happen?

I've registered a note as "Fucking", but it was merged into the cityprfile of Tarsdorf, because Fucking belongs to its municipality (that's the policy of the Austrian EBT-database).

Ah, that explains it. Thanks for that.


I recently heard of the German town of Sömmerda:

http://www.eurobilltracker.com/profile/?city=88122
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%B6mmerda

That name is awfully reminiscent of the Portuguese words "só merda", meaning "just shit" or "all shit".

It's a shame there's no "Fucking" in the EBT database, it would definitely make things a little bit more interesting. :P We gotta get the EBT team to make an exception for Fucking, given its ... unusual notoriety.

Effin might be a good place to get notes from, but I'd also like to visit Muff some day ...

Hi Eddie;

Where did you get the note from Fucking? Google Streetview doesn't go there and from the photos I've seen, there aren't any shops or anything in the place, just a small scattering-ish of houses.

You'd think one of them would have opened up a gift shop by now :twisted:

only risky for German speakers, but of some relevance for this topic are Poppendorf and Sankt Blasen, both in Styria

A couple more:

Pissos, France.

Pilas, Spain.

Both slang words for "penises" (plural) in Portuguese.

I ate in this restaurant. It's not within the village of Fucking, but less than a mile away from it (according googlemaps the village is somewhat further away, but this is the place if you look at the wikipedia-page). Theres no streetview, so I can't look for the signs.

When I got the ticket I had some doubts (it showed as cityname "Tarsdorf"), but because that's on the other side of the village of Fucking, I entered the note as so.

"My" restaurant is also mentioned at the wikipedia-page:
Augustina Lindlbauer, the manager of an area guesthouse, noted that the area had lakes, forests, and vistas worth visiting, but there was an "obsession with Fucking". Lindlbauer recalled how she had to explain to a British female tourist "that there were no Fucking postcards."

According to the wikipedia-page one inhabitant opened a webshop (selling T-shirts), but he was shouted on and threatened by the other inhabitants. So he was forced to close it down.
