So I began on the funniest number and the best number. Turnabout is fair play.

So what's the funniest word and what's the best word?

I find the word ' horse ' funny, specially when yelled out for no good reason.

Elucidate is a wonderful word.

The above notwithstanding, the new Norton security TV ads feature a wicked neologism : Fackwaggin'...I am so fackwaggin' ashamed of you right now !

"zero", because it's also a number, and can have to meanings "zero problem/zero solution". It has 2 ways to be written and can morph into a verb.

Also has the connotation of "the opposite of a hero"

I like the sound of words: effervescence, mesmerize, illumination, vibrant.

Funny words: namby-pamby, argle-bargle, cockamamie and bumbershoot.
