Yes, Daniel, 'funner' is a word . . . depending on what you call a dictionary. :o)
Here's what the Oxford has to say:
The use of fun as an adjective meaning enjoyable, as in we had a fun evening, is not fully accepted in standard English and should only be used in informal contexts. There are signs that this situation is changing, though, given the recent appearance in US English of comparative and superlative forms funner and funnest, formed as if fun were a normal adjective.
As Stephanie would say: Just sayin'. Oh, and btw, you brought it up! :o) J
