A suburban area near Austin, TX is home to a city called Pflugerville, which is currently known for making fun of its own name and the Internet is loving it for all the humorous details you can spot there.
Pflugerville, pronounced floo-gr-vil, is actually just a German word for "plowmen." The city's name was chosen in honor of Henry Pfluger, a German native who escaped the Prussian War and arrived in this Texas territory in 1849. This place currently has an estimated population of 66, 884.
A TikTok video posted on October 1 by @moh.mcc shows that the letter "F" isn't used as much throughout Pflugerville, but rather a "pf" is applied instead on things like city signage, local advertisements, and even the high school football stadium, which is called "The Pfield."
The post, which currently has over 253K views, reveals several sightings of what is being referred to as the city's own "dad joke," a unique spelling that locals take pride in.
In the previous video, the creator shows the town's distinctive tradition to name things. An example is a selling house sign that reads "PFOR SALE" instead of "for sale." Also, some events are named "pfestivals."

Now, TikTok users are joking about wanting to move there so they can be in on the jest between Pflugervillians.
"Moving to Pflugerville just so I can change my occupation to 'pfotograpfer,'" one user joked in the comment section.
