SWEDEN: PEOPLE IN FJUCKBY ARE PJISSED OFF

Residents of the village of Fjuckby have taken just about all they can stand. In a petition to the Swedish surveyors’ office they wrote: “The word ‘Fjuckby’ appears to spontaneously and repeatedly lead to associations concerning certain carnal activities between people and animals.” A change on the grounds of taste is not without precedent in Sweden. In the 1950s, Krakanger was granted a change because its name meant “vomit regret.”
