    Version 1: Past tense (he was amusing then but we don't know if he's still amusing now). For example, if Chandler was someone you met at a party and you never heard from or saw him again, even if he was still alive and well, you'd still say he "was" amusing, meaning, "He was amusing at the time I'm talking about."
