Hmm, Ok then. I thought it was more to it than that and some inside pun or something dirty. My mind, sometimes
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.
If he commented on the quim line in the commentary I must have missed it. I don't remember him talking about it. Great information though, thanks!
