Schadenfreude means pleasure in the misfortune of others.


This design is one of three in a series called "Untranslatable" German Words of Pain. I think it's intriguing how our language does not have direct translations of certain foreign words. These words are unique because they specifically represent the culture in which they originated. Also, I just find many of these "untranslatable" words quirky, cute, endearing, and funny. Maybe this is because if you look at it the other way, I am the foreigner.


My theme fits as a series because these words are German, relate to pain (emotionally/physically), and are illustrated depictions of my point of view. Oh, and I also added bunnies in the mix. Enjoy!

My comment from your other design with the bunnies I think applies equally to this design (maybe even more so). Still, best of luck and maybe you'll be the exception to the trend I've seen.

I dont think there was ever a trend of text not being nice on shirts, i've always been into any text on clothing
