Hahah! Hahahahah!!11. Schadenfreude

Not to be confused with shaftenfreund, which involves Bavarian sausages and hairy men called Gunter, schadenfreude is when the misfortune of others results in you having a bloody good laugh at their expense, making you feel better about your own pathetic life.

For example. Your so-called friends decide to hold a massive party. It’s going to be the best party in town! But your probation officer forbids you from going. It’s not fair! You will miss all the fun. You are sad.

The party is in full swing. But suddenly a huge hurricane blows through town, sweeping up the partygoers and washing them away into the sea to be lost forever. Their party is totally ruined! Lol. You feel much better.

“Schadenfreude” has always been a favorite word of mine. Unlike “Freud Shaden” — the many colors of Sigmond Freud’s rorschach test collection. I tell you, that man looked for any excuse to whip that thing out and show folks.

Isnt Schadenfreude something to do with Austrian cellar salesmen??
Here in the UK we are born with mega Schadenfreude as standard – other peoples misfortune is our comedy lifeblood!

I need more Schadenfreude in my life! 🙂

Why, I never knew there was a word for my daily entertainment! Schadenfreude. I like it!

Something to say?
