Start spending money, just for fun (5)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'fun' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both related to communication as well as being singular nouns.

'start spending money just' is the wordplay.
'start' suggests taking the first letters.
'money' becomes 'p'.
'just' becomes 'oof' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
The first letter of 'spending' is 's'.

'for' acts as a link.
