As fuck is both a noun and a verb I could say:

Yes. Because it's really, really important we get this right and be sure not to have fun on the way. Who knows what could happen. Grammatical and syntax error in internet chatrooms one day, global meltdown the next.

I'm sporkling right now.

Well, having fun within the confines of the present topic is encouraged, as well as entirely possible. But I don't suppose there's any point levelling with you! :x

Levelling is a verb. And also fun.
