A funny thing to say

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English to describe something that is amusing or humorous.

This phrase is used to describe something that is amusing or humorous, but may not be as hilariously funny as something described as 'hilarious.'

Alternatives:

  • an amusing thing to say
  • an entertaining thing to say
  • a humorous thing to say
Both phrases are correct, but they convey slightly different levels of humor. 'A hilarious thing to say' implies that the thing to be said is extremely funny, while 'a funny thing to say' suggests that it is amusing but may not be as uproariously funny. The choice between the two depends on the level of humor you want to convey.
