How did Marie Antoinette deal with everyday ridiculousness?

Did Marie Antoinette have a sense of humor?

"[She] made jokes about those in whom she perceived anything ridiculous, without any ill intention, and purely through lightness of heart."
Comte de Mercy

I love this quote, pulled from Marie-Antoinette, Her Early Youth (1770-1774). The Comte followed up his assessment by finding that she made her jokes with a distinct cleverness rendering her witty and the comments piquant!

I kind of wanted to call this post "How did Marie Antoinette deal with the haters and trolls??"!
