Okay, this one's a bit of a stretch when discussing Cursing Muppets. But my motives are pure.

A fellow Tough Pig and trustworthy source has translated the German dub of the Kermit/proto-Grover: Loud/Soft sketch here. Apparently, Big V says, "Damn it, you woke me up!" before eating Kermit's radio. (YouTube)
1.) Can any other German speaking admins or users verify the rude utterance, and
2.) If verifies, does this deserve a place on the Cursing Muppets page?

If a second source can verify, I have two questions:
1) Is there any other way that word or words can be translated to something else or than "damnit", perhaps dependent on context?
2) Is that word (what is the German word, by the way?) a swear in German, or is it similar to how Americans use the C word vs how the British use it? β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 12:04, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
That's correct he says "Damn" (Verdammt). Here's some examples of translations and uses of Verdammt. I believe that Julian, would be a better judge to decide, if it should go on the curses page than I. Henrik (talk) latest?cb=20200820192427 15:12, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Street Gang has a passage about the Germans wanting to incorporate "street vernacular" on Sesamstrasse, including the word for "shit". --GrantHarding (talk) 21:39, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
