The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

What the fjuck?

The townsfolk of Fjuckby, Sweden are tired of being the butt of jokes and have petitioned the country's National Heritage Board to change the town's name, preferably back to "Fjukeby," which was the usual spelling up until the 1930s or so.

Fjuckby apparently has the worst of two worlds: not only does it contain the English F-word, but it also contains the Swedish equivalent thereof.

Possible candidates for future name changes in Sweden: Anusviken, Arslet and Dicken.
