Fun Size

I don't know why they call tiny candy bars "fun size." I think that fun size would be something you could pole vault or joust with. I mean, how cool would it be to walk into a party with a 6' long snickers bar? A lot more fun than walking in with one that's an inch square. It's like one of those things where the name is designed to make you feel better. "Here's a tiny candy bar, but if I say it's fun sized, then it won't be so bad getting the smaller version of the food." Kind of like "You're not a janitor, you're a sanitation engineer." Personally, I'd be offended if I was an engineer. I'd also be offended if I made big candy bars & couldn't call them fun size.
