TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (101)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Saturday, February 3; link good at time of posting):
A diplomatic gaffe marred Saturday's inauguration of a China-financed stadium [in Grenada] when a band performed the national anthem of Chinese rival Taiwan.

Chinese Ambassador Qian Hongshan and scores of blue-uniformed Chinese laborers who built the $40 million Queen's Park stadium as a gift were visibly uncomfortable as Taiwan's anthem echoed inside the 20,000-seat venue.
