He That is Glad at Calamities of Another Shall Not be Unpunished

Basically the theme of this verse from Proverbs (17:5) is that "what goes around comes around". To see someone else have something bad happen to them and feel good about it, especially to the point of laughing about it is a recipe for the boomerang to come back and clip you.

Some time back President Bush was pictured riding and falling off a Segway. There was quite a lot of mirth around that. At the time Piers Morgan (who now is a Simon Cowell wannabe) had a hay day in the Daily Mirror running the headline:
"You'd have to be an idiot to fall off, wouldn't you Mr. President."
He has now fallen off of a Segway and cracked three ribs. Must have been pretty embarrassing to fall into the trap of his own words. Ever get the feeling that Someone is looking out for Dubya? It is hard to believe some of this is coincidental.

    Jacob,

    You beat me to the German word, which is perfect. That makes me stuck with English.

    Looks like Piers got hoist by his own petard. Only worse, because of the cracked ribs. President Bush just brushed himself off.

    Oh, wait. I'm starting to take delight in Piers's calamity. I'd better be careful...
