laugh

"(UK) A fun person." This seems to be part of the same sense as "Something that provokes mirth or scorn." --Yair rand 09:01, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Really? Saying 'paintball is a laugh' and 'your brother is a laugh', that's the same sense of laugh? To me they are separate. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:41, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
To me, if they're different, it's because one is fun and the other is funny. We may need two senses, but split along fun/funny rather than along person/thing. But I'm American: perhaps this is a pondian thing?​—msh210 (talk) 00:19, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
They're instinctively different to me. It's what I call my 'native speaker instinct'. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:40, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep, I agree with Mglovesfun (talkcontribs). One is something fun or funny, the other is a person who is comedic in nature or fun to be around. -- Cirt (talk) 01:36, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
