As a newly minted S/O on the DC-8 in the early 70's flying with an unnamed captain, I can definitely confirm this as true. Life is too short to be serious all the time.

As a thirty five year worker and hundreds of flights, I have been told that in many cases the flight attendants request this "turbulence" from the flight deck to get the passengers to sit, while they attempt a food/beverage service.
