I have a daily calendar that has bits and pieces of Onion stories. Here’s the one from Monday:
What Are We Feeling That Would Be Better Expressed In German?
- Dread of something inevitable yet benign: Fuerchtenünabwendbarfreundlich
- The wish to see all suffer for the crimes of one: Schadenallemeinverbrechen
- Laughter at something one knows in one’s soul is not funny: Lachenaüfkomishsnichtspaßheit
- Shame over eating last piece of Black Forest cherry cake: Schwarzschamekirshkuchenessen
