Paenismus (pai-nis’-mus): Expressing joy for blessings obtained or an evil avoided.
Hark! I bring tidings of comfort and joy!
My new underpants from Duluth Trading Post are all they’re ‘cracked’ up to be.
I walk in comfort. I sit in comfort. I stand in comfort. I live in comfort.
Oh the comfort and joy! No more binding or chafing.
These underpants are my salvation.
