Word of the Day:

Funner: Some English traditionalists claim that the only correct comparative form of the adjective fun is more fun, that the only superlative is most fun, and that funner and funnest are only appropriate in the most informal contexts. Adena said she was surprised to learn that it was a valid word, according to Webster. It means providing amusement; amusing or enjoyable. “it was a bigger and funner event.”

Adena Sabins, Suzanne Chamber, and Cyrus Murphy inducted as members; Daisy Pongrakthai voted in as new member.

Welcome back, Jason Hart!
