In these times of universal deceit and dystopia (note: it's dystopian only for the West; the rest of the world is doing about as well as they could be under the circumstances, 50 years after European colonization ended), and what with the Fraudulent One being re-imposed just 48 hours ago, it is important sometimes to pay attention to the little things.
Which is why COTT is asking anyone from Germany or who speaks good German, to please explain to us the word "verficht" in the context in which appears in the 6th minute of "Der Untergang":
We understand that "verfickt" is a curse word in German.
But how did a slight variation of this word wind up on the side of a box being evacuated from the German Chancellory in screenwriter Bernd Eichinger's 2004 biopic masterpiece?
BTW: "Downfall" should be watched and re-watched very couple of seasons. In so many ways it evokes themes that are regularly treated in the ill-ustrious pages of the New York Times.
Why, though, is Cartman saying "Fragile"? :
