From John Scalzi's blog. He coined the phrase "Schadenfreude Pie" (after the phrase "humble pie," which actually has nothing to do with the state of being humble), then wondered what such a thing would taste like. "Dark. Rich. And oh so bittersweet," he decided. He goes on to say, "Also -- and this is really just a perfect but unintentional extension of the whole schadenfreude metaphor -- you really only want a small slice; too much of this pie and it'll sit in the pit of your stomach like a rock of judgment, pulling you down. Small slice? Excellent. Big slice? You'll regret it. Just like schadenfreude itself."
