14- It's shit, horrifyingly so. Are you saying "it's horrifying bad" is right and "it's horrifyingly bad" is wrong as well? Read #66's comment and apply it to own.

Hans Anderson is truly horrifying. And the worst part is he writes like murdering your own grandmother to sell her corpse is as humdrum as doing laundry.

68 - Perhaps you should reread my comment. Nowhere in it did I say anything that would imply "it's horrifying bad" would be correct, nor did I say "it's horrifyingly bad" would be incorrect. Bad is an adjective, and may be modified by an adverb. Shit however, is a noun, and may NOT be modified by an adverb. Think before you type.

Why the hell does so many first few comments get so many thumps down?! What is the problem? "Horrifying" too bad for a comment? Should it have some joke making fun of OP or something saying "at least..." like on every fucking single other FML? You people are fucking weird.

#111- "Shit" is listed as an adjective as well in most reputable dictionaries, so you're wrong. Do you want to know how I know that? Because I looked it up. Maybe you should do the same before trying to correct people.

I did. I happen to own a dictionary as well, and in it, shit is listed as a noun, and a verb. Not as an adjective. However, there is an adjective derivation listed, "shitty".

#130-- I don't think I've ever actually heard it used as an adjective... :/ Are you sure that's not nonstandard English? I looked it up too, and all the dictionaries (including Websters) I used didn't list it as an adjective (isn't "shitty" the adjectival form of "shit"?) Which dictionaries did you use?

But I just joined in, and now I'm seriously curious! So far, what I've found is that the use of "shit" as an adjective is nonstandard British slang, and that while it's always listed as a noun and a verb, it's not always listed as an adjective. I have yet to check the OED, but the only dictionary I found that listed it as an adjective was the Wiktionary...
