"Bitte  nicht so schnell!" means "Please  not so fast!"
"Bitte nicht so schnell!" means "Please not so fast!"

I can't put the name of this special town in the title or url of this hub since Hubpages has prohibited such word from showing up in both of these spaces. Thus, I have to use an asterisk instead to replace the 'u'.

Pronounced as "fooking", Fucking is a small village in Austria which was named after the man who founded it back in the 6th century, his name is Focko. This little village is just 2.5 miles or about 4 kilometers east of the German border. It has a very tiny population of only 104 people and 32 houses.

The most notorious thing about this place is none other than the name itself and the signboards that show the name of this town are favorite tourist stop spots, where outsiders will stop by and have pictures taken with them. This place has a total of four traffic signboards.
