But he mentions it in the context of our universe. That if enough people believe something, it doesn't necessarily make it true, but it affects people's actions and thus the physical reality we occupy.

1984 was like that, too.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Yeah, although in a slightly more depressing way.

Narativium is the substance you are looking for. Very powerful stuff. Terry Pratchett makes everything more full of joy than it really is. He makes fun of society, but in a way that makes it look pleasantly odd. He's like a Douglas Adams that is exposing the follies of mankind as endearing, rather than as pointless insipidity. Both approaches have their merits though

Maybe people just have a habit of talking about things as if they're less fun than they really are.

Unless alcohol was involved. Then it had to be fun

I've had too many experiences to think that that could possibly be true.

It doesn't matter whether it was actually fun or not. Here it seems that fun is rated by how incredibly wasted you got. For example:

"How was your night?"
"It was AWESOME. I can't see"

Clearly, drinking rubbing alcohol through a loaf of french bread is empirically the most fun night you could possibly have.
