  • It bothers me that funner is not considered the valid comparative form of fun. Why? Because saying more fun is boring; that is to say, the phrase more fun is grammatically hypocritical. It is far more fun to say funner than more fun. Shouldn't a word be what it describes? Besides, I see no phonological reason why funner shouldn't be the valid form. It doesn't break any rules. Long live 'funner'!
