DOES God have a sense of humor?

Came across this interesting article, pondering the question of whether or not God has a sense of humor:

https://bible.org/question/does-god-have-sense-humor

So, my question is to those reading this - do YOU believe that God has a sense of humor, and if so, WHY do you believe that to be true? y:-? And yes, it IS a serious question! Do you have examples from Scripture or elsewhere?

God is sarcastic.
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

I have often pondered on this..
I think He has, I mean c'mon, duck billed platypus? RickD? He has to!
Seriously though we are created in His image and laughter is one of life's gift, is it not? Do animals have a sense of humour? (Actually having known a few animals, I do wonder about that)
There has to be laughter and humour, surely?

Rick: God is sarcastic.
Don't transfer your tendencies by blaming God for them! :pound:

Seriously, we could not have a sense of humor if God hadn't gifted us with it. And as we are made in His image, I would think he certainly has a sense of humor Himself. It's just that God doesn't have the sick, perverted, profane sense of humor many humans do - like SOME people we know have :P .

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6
