Sun, 16:56: yoinksquid: “romance languages” my ass. wtf is romantic about gendering a table https://t.co/JeDiGWR6kV

"Romance" in this case is a reference to Roman, as in "derived from the language of the Romans" (ie Latin)

So "romance languages" means "languages descended from Latin"

joke
[johk]


something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or a prankish act:

He tells very funny jokes. She played a joke on him.
something that is amusing or ridiculous, especially because of being ludicrously inadequate or a sham; a thing, situation, or person laughed at rather than taken seriously; farce:

Their pretense of generosity is a joke. An officer with no ability to command is a joke.

a matter that need not be taken very seriously; trifling matter:

The loss was no joke.
