Being serious can be an interesting concept
As you get older you realize that seriousness just does not give you the rate of return and satisfaction that silly does - someday you will look back on things and say: "Now why did I give a 's--t' about that in the first place

Sometimes you have to be serious, sometimes you can be silly.

Sometimes i think it is, also here, all about balance

There is no way to be polite about it. If you train Ueshiba's aiki correctly, no one from Aikido™ will be able to deal with you. So for those students opting out...it's only a matter of time before they are helpless to stop those training aiki. Aikido™ will always fail against the way of aiki (O sensei's aiki...do). It cannot be avoided.
Unless the Aikido™ guy is a Fighter™, right?

Yeah, well, maybe, but some folks just are too serious too often - people need to lighten up more - it is good for the mind and body

What's a beer glass? Does it look like a wine glass?
What do you use it for? Is that what guys use when sitting in front of that box watching men chase after rolling balls?

Ignore this wuss - he drinks girlie gimlets and not manly beer - plus he does not have a clue as to what a football is, round ball or other kind

Speaking of football, time for Sunday NFL (and BEER)
