Wednesday Word: Jocose

Jocose - adjective

Sometimes I come across a face-palm kind of word in Words With Friends. Jocose? What does that mean, other than the bot teasing me by making jocoseness on the next turn. Try to outsmart me, huh? LOL!

Most of us are probably familiar with jocose's cousin, jocular--both words mean joking, humorous or playful actions and attributes.
