image for Dr. Phil Involuntarily Committed for Schadenfreude
Phil is a master at musical statues

Dr. Phil, the famous TV psychologist, was taken away in a police car today from his studio after a team of top-notch psychiatrists diagnosed him with the little known but quite prevalent psychiatric disorder of schadenfreude, or taking pleasure in the misfortune of others.

Dr. Fedup was quoted as saying Dr. Phil had the most extreme case of schadenfreude he had ever seen in his practice and that he would require many months if not years of treatment with drugs and therapy to recover.

Dr. Hadenough said that schadenfreude is particularly difficult to treat in people over 35 because if someone has not learned true empathy by that age they are unlikely ever to learn it.

Britney Spears and other disgruntled patients said: "Thank you God."
