I thought about this and hesitated, but finally chose for the
"light-hearted" way. Indeed, do we absolutely have to be all formal all
the time? Do we really think that "looking" serious and annoying make
the XSF's job "look" more serious as well? Or can't we show we are also
the human being that we are? I don't think that jokes harm in any way
the quality of our job.

Anyway same as you, I will simply listen the opinion of the majority.
Bye. :-)
