Sentence: Using the infamous hand gesture of Donald Trump, Andy told his boss "You're fired." And to that, Mr. Dillard replied, "You can't fire me. I'm YOUR boss." Andy leaned back as far as he could in his boss' stiff-backed chair, grinned and said, "But don't you see? That's the one thing I can fire you from — you're no longer my boss!" After he enjoyed watching the reaction of his former boss for several moments, he stood up and strode out of the office, filled with a feeling of gleemancipation. It would only last until around the end of the month, when his rent was due, but for now, Andy simply enjoyed the moment.

Etymology: Glee - open delight or pleasure; exultant joy; exultation (from Old English, gliu "entertainment, mirth, jest") + Emancipation - freedom from bondage, oppression, or restraint (from Latin, emancipatus "freed from control")
