I do exactly the same, except that the code stays in the financial institution. So I'd never add humor to the code I write because financial institutions tend to take stuff very seriously.

If you are absolutely sure the code will never be requested by the client, then by all means, add some fun to the mess Smile | :) , otherwise, I'd just not risk it. I say that because I know financial institutions require a lot of audits, including source code review for security purposes.
Imagine having to review a huge code base, just to eliminate comments that may transmit a bad image of the company Sigh | :sigh:
