According to Wikpedia, it's a German term meaning "pleasure taken from someone else's misfortune." It's not something I'm proud of, but I do indulge from time to time, especially when someone who adopts a holier-than-thou stance is brought down by their own human failings, as in the recent case with Mel Gibson, uber Catholic who was recently arrested in Malibu for a DUI, and proceeded to launch into anti-Semitic and sexist comments directed at the officers on the scene.

What Would Jesus Do? I never met the guy, but from all accounts he probably wouldn't have called the female officer "sugar tits" or complained that the "Jews run everything."

It seems to me, after reading the comments to the article you linked to, there are a lot of "Mel is an asshole" deniers out there. But seriously, "sugar tits"? WTF?

Sadly, I also find myself giving a little crow when certain folks are caught being how they really are.
