schadenfreude

Definition: taking pleasure in the suffering of others

Quote:

“Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?” Homer: “No, I do not know what shaden-frawde is. [sarcasm] Please tell me, because I'm dying to know.” Lisa: “It's a German term for `shameful joy', taking pleasure in the suffering of others.” Homer: “Oh, come on Lisa. I'm just glad to see him fall flat on his butt!”
