Schadenfreude: When some idiot in a new Mustang GT runs up your ass as you approach a stoplight, swerves around you and trys to pull in front of you, only to SMACK into the huge truck in front of you and destroys his new car.

Usage: I am basking in the warm glow of schadenfreude right now.

Man! Nothing could have started my morning off better. Now, it's one thing to revel in someone's misfortune for no reason, but it's a million times better when it's a sort of karmic recompense. Good fucking morning!

Remember kiddies: If you want some potato chips, GO BUY SOME!

*gasp*

Highlights for Children!

Idea for T-shirt:

'Goofus bogarts the joint. Gallant makes sure everyone else gets a toke first.'

I have always wanted to kick the ass of that little goody-two-shoes Gallant.

Gallant = Pussy. He's lucky he didn't go to school with me and pass around no cookies. I would've smacked 'em out of his hand and then dropped him like a bad habit, ya see.

Gallant is what happens when one has experienced too many Atomic Wedgies in one's lifetime.

I have to admit I like the schadenfreude when someone passes you on the highway going about 20 mph over the speed limit, then a half hour later you see that same car pulled over by a cop!

I remember those Goofus and Gallant comics, and I have yet to meet anyone who actually acted like Gallant at this age. The panel they don't show you is Goofus and his friends giving Gallant an ass-whuppin' on the playground!

I think the "adult" Goofus and Gallant is a great idea:

Goofus rolls over and goes to sleep after he "gets off".
Gallant always makes sure his woman is satisfied.

Goofus always insists on watching football.
Gallant invites all his girlfriend's friends over to watch movies on Lifetime.

Goofus pilfers pens and stationary from his workplace.
Gallant never cheats on his timecard.

Gallant should get his prissy ass kicked.

Oh, and schadenfreude rocks especially hard on a Friday, doesn't it?

Yeah! I'm going to get drunk and laugh about it ALL night long.

Why does that girl in the last panel have a cheezy poof sticking out of her head?

Only the short bus chicks like Gallant, I notice.

Love the Mustang event! That is seriously the best feeling in the world.

What if someone had twin boys and named them Goofus and Gallant? That would be kind of cool/cruel.

"There are enough cookies for all of us. But you minorities only get some after whitey's turn at the feed bag." Gallant follows trickle-down economics.
