For your info: the town of Wank lies in Germany and is famous for the nearby Wank mountain. A cable car runs up Wank mountain which is called the Wankbahn (I'm not making this up) and I'm proud to say that I have ridden the Wankbahn myself and jolly good fun it was I must say. The village of Fucking is in Austria, but I'm yet to go there.
