I'm surprised he didn't talk about the "mewling quim" line. I was wondering what he was going to say about that.
And I loved his joke about Chris Evans'...wait for it..... the jaw
! Boom! There it is! That's why he wears the star
"Slight foxing around the edges" was a reference to a term used to describe wear and tear on a used book. Whedon said he knew it because he collects Victorian literature (children's books?).
He did make mention of the language Loki used, saying that there was some discussion about how vile it was. Whedon said that he went with the "mewling quim" line because Loki is that nasty and he definitely would go there. It amuses me that there are people who are fine with Loki being an eye-ball drilling, genocidal, fratricidal, homicidal psychopath, but his use of a sexist and sexually-charged insult perturbed them. To me it was all of a piece. Loki is a savage who disguises his base persona well until the urge to degrade and demean others breaks the brittle crust of civilization that hides his depravity.
