American Sign Language:  "fun"


Note There is a difference between fun and funny.  Fun uses a quick single motion and two hands. Funny uses one hand and a double motion. 



FUN:



FUN:


 


 

FUNNY:
The sign "funny" just uses one hand and is done near the nose and/or brushes off the nose twice.
(You don't actually have to touch the nose.)


 


 

To make light of.  /  To make fun of:
The right hand comes off the nose and thwacks the left hand and then the left hand moves up and comes down and thwacks the right hand.  (This is sort of a rare/weird sign. You are better off just using the sign "TEASE" or the sign MOCK.)
