Tongue in cheeks

>Something said in humour, but with an act of being serious
>Say something in an ironic way
>Say something jokingly, but appearing to be serious

This phrase is a literal reference to the facial expression created when putting the tongue in one’s cheek. It also includes a wink, to signify that what is being said is not to be taken seriously.


>The latest movie I watched was a tongue in cheek look at the way the media tends to over-hype certain pieces of news.

>His comments were intended to be tongue in cheek, but his friends took it seriously and that started a huge argument.
