2013-05-09 Rerun commentary: "Teufel" is a German word meaning "devil". It's used a bit like "damn".

Interestingly, Teufel is also used as a perfectly commonplace surname in German. That's a bit like coming across someone in an English-speaking culture with the name Alice Devil, or possibly Bob Damn.

(And no, he doesn't count.)
