Re: ORV S2: Identity, Part II

Making silly jokes in tense situations, and in fact in just about any situation, is what some people do, in my experience. It's not necessarily about letting off steam or releasing personal tension, saying something "inappropriate" just feels like the appropriate think to do.

That very possibly applies in some cultures a lot more than in others, rather in the same way the use of irony varies - and both these can lead to serious minunderstandings. I wouldn't imagine the Moclan would use jokes in the same way - Bortus has some of the funniest lines, but he isn't trying to be funny when he says them.
