Schadenfreudelicious

Learnt a word today and a good one to boot:

"The big news of the day was President Obama's address to Congress.
But we cannot forget the schadenfreudelicious scandal that got the day
off to a roaring start. As you'll remember, California state Rep.
Michael Duvall (R-Yorba Linda), a married champion of family values
and traditional marriage, was picked up on a live mic at a committee
hearing graphically boasting of his sexual encounters with not one but
two mistresses (one of whom is a lobbyist with business before his
committee)."
