Schadenfreude (pronounced /ˈʃɑːdənfrɔɪdə/, German pronunciation: [ˈʃaːdənˌfʁɔʏ̯də]) is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. This German word is used as a loanword in English and sometimes in other languages.
Thanks, Wiki! Sometimes, you’re cool.
My friend explained that word to me when we were listening to songs from Avenue Q, the musical. The word schadenfreude came to my mind when I was browsing this website. I found it a little amusing. Maybe even addictive. But is it wrong?
