Yes.
For an example, take a look at Jamesh's signature.
In case it ever changes in future, a copy/paste of it as it currently is:
Principal Software Engineer at Raspberry Pi (Trading) Ltd.
Contrary to popular belief, humorous signatures are allowed. Here's an example...
"My grief counseller just died, luckily, he was so good, I didn't care."
If this is in reference to what I think it is, the whole thing (and Dougielawson's signature) is a bit of a long story involving misunderstandings, temporary bans and passive aggressive venting.

Mostly signatures are annoying clutter that I wish was not there.

Avoid spam, keep it polite, don't bait the mods. Fairly simple rules.

I think jokes about "mental health" are probably not appropriate anymore. :cry:

It's really hard to speak normally now a days without someone listening in being offended. I have no idea how one would make an acceptable joke.

You really shouldn't mention "speak", as it may offend people who do not speak.

Here we go: "A person, another person and yet a another person entered an establishment. One of the people asked a question and a reply was made."

I enjoyed this one very much indeed.

piglet,

So did I.

Sadly your "joke" is not tolerable. The neurally challenged may not get it and feel excluded.

Could
"Some people underestimate the Pi."
"But not us."
"We will support Pi."
"Whatever it takes."
Because "I am Ankith26"
fit on a single line so it doesn't take so much space in the middle of a thread?

Did I mention that sigs are clutter?

Humorous sigs are possibly the worst. Even the best joke becomes dedious and annoying after you have had to scroll past it 10 times.

Please don't do that.
