Printer saying damn

Finally tracked this down:

"You will find us only on the very best atlases, because we are the smallest country left in Europe… a self-respecting country which deserves and sometimes achieves a colour of its own on the map - usually a dyspeptic mint green, which misses the outline of the frontier by a fraction of an inch, so that one can almost hear the printer saying damn." - the General, in Peter Ustinov's play Romanoff and Juliet.
