is "less and less happier" correct in English?
i searched it at Google, but got only 3 results

if it's not correct or not frequently used in English,
how to express this meaning of "less and less happier" in English
(it's better to keep the word "happy" in the sentence, you know, purposely)

thanking you!

    Yes, less happier works happily only if you are quoting Shakespeare:
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
    Against the envy of less happier lands,--
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
