"'Ain't' isn't a word."
"Really? Then what's the properly contracted form of 'am not'?"
"There isn't one."
"But all the other pairs of words with 'not' have one!"
"But 'am not' doesn't."
"Whyn't?"

Actually, there is (if memory serves) an archaic contraction: "amn't."

It looks too much like a shortened form of "amount".

Ain't is a fun word, and I'll be damned if I can't use it!

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
