I known that "insult" (v) is the way to offend someone.
But, when I only want to make some joke or play with my friends by saying some words that seem to insult them (I don't definitely want to insult them). For example:
A: That girl is very beautiful!! B: That means all women in your family are ugly, right? You have to think about your new wife! Ha Ha
(B is trying to ..?.. A that A's wife is ugly.)
Which the word in verb is suitable to use?
