I believe "fun" is considered an adjective only colloquially, but that is the way I use it all the time. The thing I object to is adding -er and -est for comparative and superlative use. I occasionally hear it, but "more/most fun" are the only funs for me. yoroshiku from the W. Coast Benjamin Barrett
