  • Sorry oroboros--I looked for it again and could only find this page. Maybe someone else who's more familiar with TNR can find the actual article...? Or maybe it's just no longer available...?

  • "Austrian marketing companies would have their work cut out trying to bring 'Windpassing Beer' to the market. However 'Fucking Beer' could well become very popular. Though in reality it's unlikely that the 104 residents of the traditional rural village near Salzburg would relish the attention of who knows how many intoxicated foreign visitors intent on knocking back vast quantities of Fucking beer and stealing Fucking signs.

    Indeed, the Fucking police chief, Kommandant Schmidtberger, says that the village already suffers from too much unwelcome attention with signs being stolen and tourists asking local store owners if they sell Fucking postcards. "Fucking is simply Fucking to us." he says. And on a continent famed for its liberal ways, few would argue with that."
