I, too, like spicy. I wouldn't put it that way, maybe, but if I did, I would expect you to mentally and unproblematically insert an "it" or "them" in there. Maybe I would sacrifice economy for clarity and say "The spicier the better," and not worry too much if I was being insufficiently abstract. You would still know, next time I came over, to leave a bottle of Cholula on the table. "Let's Merry," though, is vile in manifold ways. For one, is it passive or active? Transitive or intransitive? Can we Merry others? Is Merryness an aspect of Being or Becoming (Are we to "get," or merely be, merry?) (And then there's horrible implied homonym to "marry.")
