Tongue-in-cheek doesn’t always work so well on the net; or in life come to that. And it can be terribly awkward if you need to explain. Many don't bother because it often only leads to the person who didn't pick up on it taking offence.
But it does seem to bring joy into the hearts of the . . . joyful. Those who love to laugh, long and hard; and who also aren't afraid to cry. Feelings in general don't frighten them. Neither does thinking.
I believe God has a wonderful sense of humour. Just look at the platypus.
“Angels fly because they take themselves lightly.” – G.K. Chesterton
“Even the gods love jokes.” – Plato
In regards to religion vs. new age spirituality, you have to ask yourself, would you rather go to a Jewish/Catholic comedy festival or new age comedy festival? Now times that by eternity.
It’s all about balance. ;)
