Tongue-in-Cheek

Postby God » Thu May 18, 2017 11:12 am

When someone is being tongue-in-cheek, they are being amusing in a clever or a naughty manner.

If you have watched Avengers, Iron Man is always tongue-in-cheek.

Example:
Girlfriend to boyfriend who is an astronaut: Neil, tell me where you are right now.
Boyfriend: I am on Earth darling!

The response here is tongue-in-cheek.
