Lottereyes by AK-Is-Harmless Lottereyes by AK-Is-Harmless
Sometimes I wish human facial expressions had the elasticity of cartoon characters. No one would be able to hide their real feelings. And if anyone won the lottery, everyone would know without smug announcements of sudden wealth.

I admit this comic gets a little weird. I just starting inserting thoughts and it got out of control.

For the rest of the month, Winslow is going to try to spend his ill-gotten lottery winnings.

(And for those of you wondering, "schadenfreude" means finding delight in other people's misfortune.)

This first appeared on Defenestration [link] on Friday, December 2nd.

Sadly, no. But the great thing about English is that we can steal words from other languages and no one notices. :)

We germans already stole so much english words and german-ized them, you couldn't believe it :lol:
But it is really sad that you have no word for this, because we germans say "Schadenfreude is the best joy" (Freude - Joy. Schaden means Damage, by the way ;) )
Because it's true we all have a little inner Winslow, no cut that more an inner Kurt the Cynic who just loves when other people accidentaly hurt themsleves or others xD But not too bad, of course ;)

I think the freaky intermission with spontaneous self-awareness and obscure German pop-psychology references makes the punch-line way cooler! :la: :cake:

I have never actually seen those dollar sign eyes in real life. Maybe that is because I am poor.

WAY TO USE ROBIN WILLIAMS COMEDY IN YOUR COMIC!

and if that's not where you got it, i'm sorry.

Schadendfreude is an awesome word... German's the ipod of languages... "German: we have a word for that!"
