It can't be that hard, to google some common german insults, can it?
Harder than you think, actually. At least, it was when the book was written. Sorry that threw you out the narrative.
Googling is easy. Knowing how they're going to sound to a living, breathing native speaker is more difficult.

Perhaps next time when such a problem occurs, maybe you authors and editors should think of this place (and similar ones): When it is about German language, I am willing to help. Just ask!
