Fun I can agree with! It is what made me stick with Guile in the first place.

GNU as an adjective seems odd: I think that can better be conveyed as a part of 
the name "GNU Guile". It is and, if I have understood the discussions going on 
here, will continue to be a GNU project. Maybe treat fun as a noun: GNU Guile - 
fast functional fun :D

I'd leave the fine details of taglines to someone who is better versed in 
english than me, though.
