St Theresa

Issue 1454
st theresa.jpg It is with great sadness that I send commiserations to our fellow Headmistress, Mrs Merkel, from the Vorsprung Durch Technikal Akademie in Berlin. After a rather bruising debate in her school, Frau Merkel ended up with fewer votes than she hoped and is being forced to rely on the support of a team that she doesn’t really agree with.

In many senses, she’s become a caretaker or a “dead Headmistress walking”. One can only imagine how depressing that must be for her. I’m feeling a confused emotion which I’m struggling to find the right word for, though I’m told there is a German expression which perfectly captures it. It is “Schahahahahadenfreude”.
