"Please get my hometown Effin recognised"

[quote=BBC News]Ann Marie Kennedy, who is from the parish of Effin in county Limerick in Ireland, has been trying since June to get her home town recognised by Facebook. She also tried to set up a Facebook page entitled, "Please get my hometown Effin recognised". But it too was blocked by the social networking site.

@Strat - you need to relax with a nice cool beer http://newslite.tv/2010/03/29/brewer-wins-right-to-name-beer.html

Stefan Fellenberg had initially been told by the European Patent Office that his brewery could not use the name for a beer as it was offensive.
But after three years of legal wrangling he appears to have somehow managed to convince them his brew is actually named after a village in Austria and not the rude word.

No prizes for guessing the common pronunciation of this village between Andover and Newbury: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/myplaces?ll=51.324605,-1.437492&spn=0.062647,0.139217&vpsrc=6&ctz=0&t=...
