Schottenfreude is a brief glossary of elaborately constructed German words for things like meal envy--envying what someone else ordered--and the unreasonable pain you feel from a minor injury like stubbing your toe. Most of the words are probably unpronounceable unless German is your first language, so that you can make that "cough in the back of the throat" noise. This book also makes me remember that German was the first language of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, the fathers of psychology. The German and Austrian people are a little weird, if you go by their vocabulary.
I had a lot of fun with this book. It's a good thing my apartment is pretty well soundproofed because I'm sure one of my neighbors would come find out what I was giggling maniacally for a couple hours this evening.
