Quote of the month, in my opinion:

1955, Peter Novobatzky, Depraved and Insulting English:

"The residents of quiet, tree-lined Bowker Street were a peaceful lot as a rule, but their feathers got a bit ruffled when the local ice cream truck man refused to lower the volume of the horrid wheedling music his vehicle constantly emanated. And so when the deranged war veteran from the next block destroyed the truck with a bazooka one fine spring morning, they all felt the warm glow of epicaricacy spreading through their veins."

(epicaricacy (n))
1.(rare) Rejoicing at or derivation of pleasure from the misfortunes of others.
