    Depends on whether they deserve to fail or not, and whether they fail in an amusing way or not.

    An English word of similar meaning is "gloating", where "gloat" is defined as "to observe or think about something with triumphant and often malicious satisfaction, gratification, or delight" (gloat over an enemy's misfortune).

    If they do so in a humorous way.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I absolutely do when it is someone who is up to no good or doing something to hurt my Family, Friends, or Nation.

    I will jump for joy to see some people fail in the 2010 election.

    LOL, touché. Not much I can really say to that after last Sunday. Still, I'll keep the faith. I'm used to it.
