Cussing in German : "Schimpfwörter"

A while back I listed some French cuss words that brought readers back for months afterward. It seems people are interested in refining their anger at times!

I have a cousin who lives in Germany who I bet could tell me words that aren’t even listed here (or in the link I provided). What do you say Perry?

Note that in general, German is a very lenient cussing language. Seven-year-olds readily use the equivalent for "shit" in front of their mothers. It's just hard to get the same severity as in English. 

There are more nasty names that I won’t list here, but if you go here you can read the ones that really mean business!
