Get the having a laugh mug.
'Having a laugh' is a remark used to describe a type of comic behaviour that is facetious, ironic or sarcastic. The person may be fooled into believing the other person is being serious, when in fact he's just 'having a laugh'. It's harmless fun.
In some cases it's synonymous with mockery.
But like most things British its subtle and understated.
It's also lighthearted in nature

"What would you go for first if you were a piranha?"
"I'd probably just have a bag of crisps."

Steven Grant’s iconic line in Moon Knight. A British expression used in times where something laughably shocking has happened.
Steven: “someone’s having a laugh!”

Steven… again: “you’re having a laugh!”
