Can things be unfunny?

Yes is the answer. Many mortals will say “not funny” and that is correct. “Unfunny” is simply another way to say “not funny”. Remember the “golden rule”: the fewer words the better. One word is better than two words.

Here are some examples using “unfunny”.

* It is an unfunny political joke (… un broma política sin gracia).

* Mr. Sánchez told an unfunny joke (…sin pizca de gracia).

* Mr. Sanchez´s jokes are painfully unfunny.

* The Spanish cabinet (cabinete) is full of unfunny clowns (…lleno de payasos sin gracia).
