noun: Overwhelming sense of maudlin upon discovery of unfortuante occurances and outcomes amongst friends and aquaintences. Variation on the more common German "Schadenfreud" where the prevaling emotional state upon similar discoveries is one of glee; happiness; or pleasure.
When Jim shat himself before he could make it upstairs to the bathroom, most of the peeps at the party nearly split their sides with laughter; but all I felt was some serious Sadenfreude.
