  • Word of the Day!!!!

    I would figure i would have a word of the day thing so we can expand out vocab.. but really never use it..

    Todays is:

    Schadenfreude:
    Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.

    Now lets try to use it.... once...

    (Who says Avenue is't Educational... hehe)

      How did you come to pick such an odd word for the first one?

      Here it goes........
      Did you see that new mini van? Its called a Schadenfreude it has 17 cupholders and a pic-nick table in the back with possiblities for an umbrella.

      LOL hows that?
      Yes, it is fast....

              Correct useage of said word by Whatever. Snacks, it's not so much a noun or name, as it is a feeling!
              She walks in beauty, like the night
              Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
              And all that's best of dark and bright
              Meet in her aspect and her eyes.....

                        This word of the day thing is reminding me of Pee Wees Playhouse, oh how I miss that show.

                          Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Hehehheh.

                          "Schadenfraude hmm? What's that, some kind of Nazi word?"
                          "Yep! It means happiness at the misfortune of others."
                          "Happiness at the misfortune of others... that IS German!"

                          Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                            Not quite sure I understand the point of your comment (or why it fits into this thread), but if you are trying make a serious statement then I believe you have completely missunderstood the statement I am making.

                                well the avatar you show is sponge bob... in your sig you have this..."Beware! Evil, gay cartoon characters are plotting to corrupt your children"
                                If you dont mean sponge bob who are the evil gay cartoon characters that your referring too?

                                I always hear people refer to Sponge Bob Square Pants as being gay.
                                I personally dont care either way if he is or isnt.... In my very own opinon I dont believe he is..... after all he did have that crush on the female squirl.
                                Yes, it is fast....

                                  I'm making a satyrical comment on the foolishness of the closed minded individuals who recently tried to cause a public uproar about supposedly gay cartoon characters. I'm not saying it is what I believe. It's my way of pointing out how stupid other people can be. If you are unaware of those news stories from a few weeks back i would be happy to dig up the links for you so that you too can join my crusade.
