Welcome, and thank you for trying to lighten up Wikipedia. However, this is an encyclopedia and the articles are made to be serious, so do not make joke edits. Readers looking for accurate information will not find them amusing. If you would like to test with your editing, try the sandbox, where you can write practically anything you want.
