We’ve been lobbying for “funner” to be a new word. So much so we made a website to help it along. Visit www.makefunneraword.com to cast your vote and support.

Read/Write Web thinks it should have been “facebook”.

I also agree with ParisLemon. Do you know anyone who has ever used the word Facebook in a sentence? No you don’t, c’mon.
