Taking pleasure in the stupidity or ignorance of others.

A derivative of schadenfreude, from German Depp (dimwit) + Freude (joy). A particularly powerful emotion when the cause of your deppenfreude is berating others for not agreeing with them.
I can't stop watching Intelligent Design videos on youtube, I think I'm addicted to deppenfreude.

I haven't been getting my mainstream media deppenfreude fix since Sarah Palin left the spotlight.
