“What’s the most fun you’ve ever had together?”
“Oh, we don’t know…”
“Well, what’s the hardest you’ve ever laughed together?”
“Now you listen here! I want you to write down these questions you’re asking us, pull them out when you’re 85 years old, and see if you can answer them yourself!”

A print ad that declares “I wish my son had cancer,” has sparked debate about what is and what is not a suitable tone and sentiment in charity advertising.

The ad is for Harrison’s Fund—a charity set up by the parents of Harrison, a 6-year-old boy with the degenerative condition Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which is incurable, barely known outside medical circles, and receives little research funding. Here’s the full ad, and the rest of the story

Got an emotion that you can’t quite find the words for? The Emotionary can probably help. It’s a website that invents new words for those moments when you just can’t find the right one.
Help us come up with more words that describe modern emotions. Here, a few you’ve submitted so far:
Elacceleration: The belief that pushing an elevator button repeatedly will make it come faster. 
Sarcasmus: Sarcastic + charismatic
Thinkonit: To postpone.

What other modern emotions don’t have words for them?
