Germany: Nation of Naughty, Naughty, Last Names

Fuchs wants Kuntz talks

Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg are reportedly talking to former German international striker Stefan Kuntz about the vacant post of sport director.

The Wolfsburger Nachrichten reports that Wolves executive Klaus Fuchs is planning to meet Kuntz to discuss the position left vacant after Peter Pander's recent resignation.


Do you mind if we just call you Schucks and Darns?

Somebody once e-mailed me a picture of a bus from a Dutch tour company called "Fucker". It was in the news in Europe because British travel companies apparently tried to convince them to change their name, but they refused because it was the surname of the owner.

There's also apparently a village in Austria calling "Fucking". That was also in European news recently because it has seen a sudden influx of English tourists. I guess that makes sense; Brits are even more obsessed with their abdominal jewels than Americans seem to be.

Alright, you guys...

Those names aren't so bad if you actually pronounce them correctly. After all, "foox" and "koontz" don't really mean anything, do they? Neither does "fooker", for that matter.

Now, if you had an American with a name like "Pinkeln", "Hoden", "Fickt", or "Saugmeister", you'd have the Germans rolling in the aisles.

What's the matter? Is your f****n' asterisk button broken?

I only say that because my mother-in-law reads this page and probably would rather we kept the pretense of asteriskity.

As Mr. Anonymous, I would like to formally apologize for my foul word in my previous post. I meant no harm by it, and can honestly say it will never happen again. I swear.

Oh, what's all the f***ing fuss about? If you take time to actually READ my comment, you will note that I gave the name of an existing and totally legitimate, Dutch tour company and the name of an existing and totally legitimate Austrian town. You wouldn't expect me to put asterisks in "Fletch International" or "Milwaukie", would you?
