Schadenfreude - taking delight in the misfortunes of others. Especially when they're con artists

Schadenfreude - to take delight in the misfortunes of others. I really shouldn't, but had to fight the battle alone for years.
Go here. Then go here.
It's all unraveling. But I'm not going to write any more about it. I promised.

Two things... First: My thoughts that the old WWF (World Wrestling Federation) was more believable than the 'new' WWF (Warming World Fakers... er, World Wildlife Federation) have been vindicated.

I think I recall a few years ago, the 'new' WWF villain, "The Heater", said something like this before another 'bowing out' of a fight with 'Robert the Rational':

"I'm THE HEEEATER! And I'm gonna HEAT THINGS UP!!! I'm gonna MAKE YOUR OCEAN RISE!!! I'll TEAR OUT 30 - NO, make that 40% of your rain forests!!! THEN, I'm gonna STOMP 'em!! And you can't stop me, Robert The Rational. You and your friends, the Rational Thinkers are going downnn! Me and my boys, The Anthropogenic Avenger and The Gore-inator are challenging you to a cage death match. Kyoto rules, of course!"

second: Schadenfreude... my favorite song about the subject set to cleverly edited clips from "The Lion King" and a few other Disney animated classics...

I would respond, but I'm taking the high road. I'm not writing anything about the slow, pitiful death of this scam.
(But I could have SUCH a great time with strobe lights flashing around the ring, and some smoke bombs, and a WWF announcer saying AND NOW...THE MAN YOU LOVE TO LOVE....THE GORACLE ! ! ! )
But I'm not writing any more about that stuff. I'm through with it.
