Poll question: Is schadenfreude always inappropriate?
Everyone knows what "schadenfreude" is: it's that wonderful feeling people enjoy experience when seeing or hearing about someone else's impending doom misfortune.

With our ticket complete and the grassroots ready to do their best, some of us have mentioned eine kleine schadenfreude.

Was that bad?

Should we not have done that?


Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Why are you even bothering to ask this question?
Edited on Sat Aug-23-08 09:30 PM by GoneOffShore
You don't think those bastards wouldn't be enjoying some nice chilled schadenfreude if they were in the same place?

"Waiter, can I have a double order of schadenfreude with some shafafa on the side?? And make sure the Republicans at the other table don't get any."

4. Some liberals believe we should be "above" these sorts of emotional involvements.
I'm asking to find out if everyone feels the same way.

17. Ah the "Concerned" Liberals.
Fuck 'em and the politically correct horse they led in.

I'm going off to see Tropic Thunder, again. And laugh my ass off.

And then I'm going to have a nice chilled glass of schadenfreude.

11. DU is truly amazing
Less than a week ago I stumbled across this picture on Fark and I thought "LOL! I need to save this to my Photobucket account. I might need it some day!"

And lo and behold, that day has arrived.







Thank you, ColbertWatcher.

13. other
They'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
They'll stone you just like they said they would
They'll stone you when you're trying to go home
They'll stone you when you're there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

They'll stone you when you're walking on the street
They'll stone you when you're trying to keep your seat
They'll stone you when your walking on the floor
They'll stone you when your walking to the door
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

They'll stone you when you're at the breakfast table
They'll stone you when you are young and able
They'll stone you when you're trying to make a buck
They'll stone you and then they'll say good luck
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Well They'll stone you and say that it's the end
They'll stone you and then they'll come back again
They'll stone you when you're riding in your car
They'll stone you when you're playing you guitar
Yes But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned
Alright

Well They'll stone you when you are all alone
They'll stone you when you are walking home
They'll stone you and then say they're all brave
They'll stone you when you're send down in your grave
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned
