  • Can you link to any places you've seen that or heard it? Based on the one example you've provided here, I could only guess at the meaning. It sounds newfangled. – J.R. Sep 1 '17 at 13:38
  • I have seen it on "vocabluary.com." Here it is: "If someone is being facetious they’re being playful with an edge. " – Dmytro O'Hope Sep 1 '17 at 15:13
  • That sentence is being used to define "facetious". It's not a common expression in everyday English. – J.R. Sep 2 '17 at 10:04
