Make sure you have an expert look at it first. There are a lot of fakes out there.

Sad is a one-syllable word, which makes sadder the proper comparative form of the word. Guess you shouldn't try to be "that guy" next time. Merry Christmas!

He's right, The grammatical rule for this issue says that single syllable words (like sad) form their comparative sadder) and superlative (saddest) degree by adding a syllable rather than using more or most in front of them. For words of three or more syllables (like beautiful) you must use "more" or "most" rather then adding a syllable at the end. It's only two syllable words where you actually have a choice; you add the "er" or "est" ending unless it makes the word awkward to say.

Seriously, everyone knows that money is for booze, partying, supporting single moms at the local establishments and eating poorly.

My first two thoughts were, "I'M A MAN!! I'M 40!!!" and "lulz" at the suckling comment.
