Wuxi Expat Admits He Feels Schadenfreude

Wuxi Expat Hugo Z Hackenbush says he can’t help but feel Schadenfreude when he looks at the rest of the world and compares its situation to that of the Wuxi China Expatdom.

"You know! I almost feel sorry for all those dumb bastards who didn’t want to move to Wuxi or who left Wuxi before our King Gorzo established a constitutional monarchy! But they had to jeer at those of us who stayed! And look what they got! In America, they have the Obama Presidency! In Europe, they got the screwed up Euro! In North Korea, they have son of son or whatever-his-name-is ruling! In the Suzhou China Expatdom, they will spend years cleaning up because few of them were toilet-trained! And what have we got? Archduke Harry Moore, King Gorzo, Queen Ayira, Prime Minister Mango, Wonder Woman, Harry Callahan, Funk-Country Fusion, great mountain climbing, great surfing, great cuisine from the world over, a vibrant poetry scene not funded by the government, freedom, tremendous economic growth, dancing in the streets, great sports teams, camel riding, the civil war theme park, and the world’s best army, navy and air force! And so much more to boot!" said Hackenbush, an animal doctor at the TE Lawrence Memorial Camel Riding Park in the Bing Hu District.

Hackenbush ended his interview with the WCE Blog saying: "Now that I think about it! Non-Wuxi Expats can kiss my ass! And I will revel in my Schadenfreude!"
