FUN: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "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. 






Sample sentence: Do you think this class is fun?






Sample sentence: Swimming is FUN!



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.)



Sample sentence: My uncle is funny and mischievous, he laughs a lot.



FUNNY-version / amusing / humorous / HUMOR-version:




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.)





MOCK / make fun of:



Notes: See: ENJOY
