There's a difference between hilarious and hysterical, hysterical is not an adjective that describes something as funny. Hysterical means crazy and delirious. Hilarious means extremely funny. People need to learn the difference. amirite?

Hysterical also means excessive or uncontrollable emotion.

Something can be hysterically funny though.

If hysterical means crazy, crazy is an adjective.

e.i. That's is a crazy cat.
Your crazy.

@NoSoapRadio your point?

OP said hysterical wasn't an adjective. Just pointing out a grammatical error.

@SmartSpoon OP said hysterical wasn't an adjective. Just pointing out a grammatical error.

Ohhhh... I see what you're saying now. However, you lack basic reading skills. Try rereading the post. I in no way claim that "hysterical" is not an adjective. I said it's not an adjective that describes something as funny.

1. It's very rare, many people, like you, don't have it. 2. Nothing, you just can't make a valid point so you need to make fun of someone who is questioning you.

Most people can't even understand how to write in proper English. I blaim texting and cell phones for most of the problems this decade.
