German army fights underground Nazi war machine hidden in Kiel pensioner's cellar


Re: Must have been an interesting sight

The German for "motherfucker", is, in practice "motherfucker".

Something like "mutterficker" would probably be taken in a literal sense as someone who has sex with a mother.

English seems to be the preferred language for obscenity in Germany (and the Netherlands too, apparently).

(I'd like to sit a German down with a copy of the profanisaurus one day, and see how seriously they take it.)
