Listers, in his seminal Summa Theologica, our Angelic Doctor states the following on playful deeds and humor:
Augustine says (Music. ii, 15): “I pray thee, spare thyself at times: for it becomes a wise man sometimes to relax the high pressure of his attention to work.” Now this relaxation of the mind from work consists in playful words or deeds. Therefore it becomes a wise and virtuous man to have recourse to such things at times. Moreover the Philosopher [Ethic. ii, 7; iv, 8 assigns to games the virtue of eutrapelia, which we may call “pleasantness.” - ST II-II 168.A2
