You might know someone who wisecracks constantly. I'd like to understand that better...

This is a relative who does this and he has for years. Why? If we are speaking intently about some topic...he'll take a word and twist it's meaning in a wisecracky way...causing us to stop and faux chuckle - and derailing our convo momentarily... I have kind of gotten used to it...but I'd like to understand it... I have some ideas myself but I'd like to hear a word from the many Masters of Opinions...
