    Default it was a lot of fun

    Dear all,

    How should I understand "it was a lot of fun" underlined in the sentence below?

    Thanks in advance.

    A recession becomes a depression when things get so bad that a country’s GDP drops by more than 10 percent. The last time that happened in the United States, we called it the Great Depression — and not because it was a lot of fun.

    It's ironic; it wasn't fun at all.
